Shakespeare's Birthday Celebrations
Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April 2015

Celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday with performances and activities for all the family around the theatre.

On Saturday 25 April, enjoy a range of free activities for all ages, including storytelling sessions, stage fighting workshops and the chance to discover how fake scars and bruises are created. Visitors can also enjoy music in the foyer areas and ascend our 36 metre high tower to hear sonnets read by RSC actors.

Find out about the full programme of events here or use the links on the left.

On Sunday 26 April, join us for a glorious early evening of words and music to celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday. Find out more about Shakespeare's Birthday Bash here.

Don't forget to use #happybirthdayshakespeare to help share your birthday wishes. 

The RSC Ensemble is generously supported by THE GATSBY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION and THE KOVNER FOUNDATION
