Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations 2023

The traditional Birthday Celebrations return to Stratford-upon-Avon in April, extending a hand of cultural friendship to many national and international visitors who come to join in the festivities.

During the Covid-19 pandemic when the arranging of a physical parade was not possible, we released a virtual celebration which was broadcast via YouTube.  This can be accessed via the link

We are greatly indebted to all those who, by their help and support, have made the 2022 Birthday Celebrations possible.  We therefore look forward to welcoming everyone to Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 22 April 2023 for this year’s event.
