It’s National Shakespeare Week and we’re celebrating all things Shakespearean.
William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright and actor born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire in April 1564. He was married at the age of 18 to Anne Hathaway and they had three children together; Susanna in 1583 and twins Hamnet and Judith around 1585. It’s been over 400 years since the ‘Father of the English language’ died but his works remain relevant and compelling to this day. Shakespeare Week opens the door to Shakespeare and ensures that children are given a chance at a great first experience with one of the world’s most famous playwrights.
