The Royal Shakespeare Company is offering visitors to Stratford-upon-Avon a wide range of activities to help celebrate Shakespeare’s Birthday over the weekend of Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April.
Free events include a performance of Out of the Deep Blue, a family friendly outdoor show about the environment featuring a 13-foot-tall puppet, and the opportunity to enjoy the RSC’s new Dell Forest Garden, a space for reflection which also aims to improve the area’s biodiversity.
There will also be the chance to see the final two parts of the Henry VI trilogy, Henry VI: Rebellion (1.15pm) and Wars of the Roses (7.15pm) on Saturday 23 April, and to be part of the live audience for an edition of the popular podcast, The Guilty Feminist, at 7.30pm on Sunday 24 April. All three performances will take place in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
Prior to the birthday weekend, on 21 April, a newly revised second edition of The Complete Works of Shakespeare will be published, the perfect gift for all Shakespeare lovers.
