    Today is a celebration of William Shakespeare’s 451st birthday!  This legendary playwright, whose works include Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet, is said to have been born on this day.  Today also marks the day of his death (some 399 years ago). Some great ways to celebrate the Bard’s life, if you’re lucky enough to be in Stratford-Upon-Avon this Saturday, is to join the celebrations which include a parade and a day filled with fun and festivities. More information can be found at  Also, the Shakespeare Globe Theatre is running many special offers today and also has tickets for performances starting from just £5! Find out more here

    If you would like a great way to mark this occasion, there’s a choice of a Macbeth or Henry V mug at Miss Bohemia!
