The Bard's Night

To be there? What a night. What a triumph.

An outstanding evening of Shakespeare linked entertainment, music and dramatic performances for a memorable night of celebration at Stratford ArtsHouse, on the eve of the Stratford Literary Festival and just ahead of the Shakespeare Birthday Weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon..

It was a feast of an evening.

The Bard's Night celebrates the life of Stratford-upon-Avon's most famous son and the greatest literary genius in the English language - William Shakespeare. There are many events that celebrate the works of Shakespeare, but The Bard's Night will focus on the man, his life, his achievements and the influences drawn from his life in Stratford and London. The Bard's Night is a highly enjoyable feast of food, drinks and astonishingly good performances from Fred Theatre, Diabolus in Musica, Bukechi and others.
