Shakespeare's Singing Advent Calendar - December 12th

Join in with the Shakespearean festivities on the twelfth day of advent

Katie Neville

The 16th century soundtrack to Shakespeare's life would have included 'Three Merry Men', a folk song mentioned in Twelfth Night. Filmed inside Shakespeare's Birthplace and given a Christmas twist for Shakespeare's Singing Advent Calendar by in-house actors Richard Bunn and Martin Smith, the third and merriest man is played by a small but perfectly formed William Shakespeare from the Birthplace shop. Visit shakespeare.org.uk from now until Dec 24th for more unexpected understudies and pre-Christmas cheer. #Shakespeare'ssingingadventcalendar
