Travel Disruption in Stratford Town Centre

Celebrate Shakespeare's 453nd Birthday!

Shakespeare's  Birthday Celebrations

This weekend, our team will be out in the town centre for Shakespeare's 453rd Birthday Celebrations. If you see us, come and say hi!

Please be aware that there will be increased traffic on the outskirts of Stratford this coming weekend as the town centre closes its roads for the annual Shakespeare's Birthday Celebrations.

Shakespeare's Birthday Celebrations 2017 organised by Shakespeare's Celebrations, the initiative jointly lead by Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council and Stratford-on-Avon District Council, will include many of the traditional features we have come to love and cherish since the first Celebrations in 1824.

All the usual participants will be there, among them civic dignitaries, VIPs and invited guests from the worlds of literature and theatre, students of Shakespeare's school and characters in period dress, marching bands and local schoolchildren making their way through the streets towards Holy Trinity Church.
