William Shakespeare's 450th Birthday

Celebrating the Bard's big birthday at the Shakespeare Birthplace

Katie Neville

On April 23rd 1564, William Shakespeare was born in a house on Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. Exactly 450 years later, in the garden of the very same house, visitors from around the world gathered to celebrate the Bard’s big birthday. The atmosphere was full of joy and we hope that the birthday blogs on Living Shakespeare capture the essence of this memorable occasion.
