Celebrating the Bard
This year is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and to commemorate this landmark there are numerous events being staged across the county.
Shakespeare died on April 23 in 1616 in Stratford-upon-Avon, which was also his birthplace.
He produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613, writing 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses.
His plays have been translated into every major language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
