The Bard's Night


To be there? No question.

On Friday April 21, 2017 - there will be 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.

A feast of an evening.

The Bard's Night will be a feast of an evening to celebrate 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 will be a highly enjoyable feast of food, drinks and astonishingly good performances from Fred Theatre, Diabolus in Musica, Bukechi and others.
