Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

If the bard were alive today he’d be blowing out 446 birthday candles, on what we can only imagine would be a humungous cake.

There’s a sprinkling of Shakespeare at Hay this year.  Deborah Newbold, the Globe’s very own principal storyteller, will be spinning the lyrical tales of Romeo & Juliet and King Lear for her audiences’ delight.  This is a fantastic opportunity to revisit or be introduced to some of Will’s greatest work.  Cue love, betrayal, madness, duels and royalty.  Sounds like a good way to spend a morning to us!

Oh and we probably shouldn’t forget St George, it’s his day too.  Go George!
