William Shakespeare

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!

Celebrate the 150th birthday of Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland this year! Are you planning an unbirthday party!  You could invite Alice, the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the March Hare, the Queen of Hearts but don’t forget the ‘drink me’ potions and ‘eat me’ sweet treats!

If you would like a wonderful memento to mark this occasion look no further than my two delightful additions to Miss Bohemia!
