Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth

For more photos from the sites of William’s Shakespeare life, explore the Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Globe Theater and Shakespeare’s Grave location pages.

Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.

From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.

The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).

This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.

thateventuality:

The Beatles’ Apple boutique, 94 Baker Street, London. It opened on 7 December 1967, and closed on 31 July 1968. Initially, it featured this psychedelic mural, created by The Fool. Within weeks of the opening, other local stores filed complaints and the council issued an order to have the building re-painted in white.

"Trying to influence people and doing things like painting the Apple shop was all just part of the the Teddy boy in us, the Teddy-boy theme of ‘We’ll show them.’ We thought, ‘We’ll paint the building one night, and the next morning people will come up the street and the whole bloody building’s going to be psychedelic.’ That was what it was all about - I think we would have been pirates in a different life." - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

Can you spot le Macca ?

"This song was written by an old estranged fiancee of mine called Paul."

- John Lennon on I saw Her Standing There, Madison Square Garden (1974)

Linda called Heather every night from London and often handed the phone to Paul and told him to say hello to her daughter: ’I got on the phone thinking, “Oh my God, if she hates me this could be very difficult”… I said, “Will you marry me?” and she said, “I can’t, you’re too old!” and I said, “Well, maybe I should marry your Mummy, that’d be good.”’
