What's On

Stratford has a wide range of colourful events and festivals for visitors to enjoy throughout the year. With award winning performances at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Civic Hall Theatre, Stratford also boasts its own Literary Festival, Music Festival, Food Festival, River Festival and Stratford Town Mop.

One particular highlight in the calendar and unique to Stratford is the Shakespeare Birthday Celebrations which have been held annually in the town for nearly two centuries. The tradition brings together the local community, professional and amateur performers and artists and ambassadors from around the world in a vibrant celebration of the life and works of Stratford's favourite son. The town's streets overflow with pageantry, music and drama over the birthday period and visitors can enjoy a packed full programme of special celebratory activities.
