Today marks a momentous day in the history of literature and theatre as people from all over the world mark the birth of the most famous playwright of all time.

This weekend celebrations will be held in Stratford-Upon-Avon, with hoards of fans expected to turn up in Elizabethan style clothing and join in with the day’s merriments! If you’re lucky enough to be going down this Saturday then remember to pay a visit to Shakespeare’s family home and make sure to stick around for the Luncheon Marquee.

We can’t guarantee it will be a Shakespearian feast of blackbird pie and deer, but it should certainly be momentous!

You can find out more about Shakespearian celebrations taking place this week by visiting the official Shakespeare’s birthday site.
