Hi there Readers,
Stratford-on-Avon District Council is hoping the two-day Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations will pump more than £3 million into the local economy.
A whole host of special events in Stratford-upon-Avon is set to draw crowds of thousands of locals as well as UK and international tourists to the area for the festivities on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28.
Organisers are hoping the festivities will be able to top the 2018 event which saw £3 million spend in the local economy as a direct result of the festival.
The celebration parade and flag unfurling ceremony on the Saturday will see huge crowds line the streets of the town with the weekend of celebrations culminating on the Sunday with Shakespeare’s quill being carried from his Birthplace to be placed in the hand of the effigy of the Bard which overlooks his grave at Holy Trinity Church.
Street entertainment is a prominent feature of the celebrations with the National Living Statue Championship returning to the town for 2019, drawing international champions in the art of living statue performance to the region, along with an array of other fun activities and competitions.
