Shakespeare 400

2016 - Shakespeare 400

“The 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016 is the biggest opportunity to put UK culture on the world stage since the London 2012 Olympics.

As the most widely read and studied author in the English language, Shakespeare provides an important connection to the UK for millions of people around the world, and the world will be looking to celebrate this anniversary with the UK.

We hope that the UK’s cultural organisations will come together to meet these expectations and ensure that 2016 is our next Olympic moment.”
