Shakespeare 400

What is Shakespeare 400?

April 23, 1616:  William Shakespeare died in Stratford-upon-Avon in England, and his legacy began.

Around the globe, theaters, universities, museums and schools will celebrate the plays and sonnets and their impact from Renaissance England to the entire world today.

The English-Speaking Union, a leader in Shakespeare education in America, celebrates this legacy through the hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and members who have participated in our National Shakespeare Competition, workshops and classes for educators in the US and UK, and lectures and events across the country.  

Please join us for these events and more in 2016
