Join us as we celebrate the Birthday of the Bard in Startford-on-Avon style. Each year the Birthplace Museum organizes a parade through town to honor the master storyteller and poet. Black and gold balloons are released, flags of many nations are unfurled, flowers are placed on his grave. We will recreate these events and many others on Tuesday, April 23rd, as homage to William Shakespeare.
