The World Shakespeare Festival is a celebration of Shakespeare as the world’s playwright and we hope you will come and join us.
Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, in an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organisations, and with Globe to Globe, a major international programme produced by Shakespeare’s Globe, it’s the biggest celebration of Shakespeare ever staged.
