Shakespeare's Birthday Fireworks

Join us on Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday on 23 April for a magnificent free firework display.

Taking inspiration from Ben Jonson’s description of William Shakespeare as our ‘Star of Poets’,  we will launch our Shakespeare birthday festivities with a free fireworks display from the top of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Emergency Exit Arts, one of the country’s leading pyrotechnic creatives, brings you a stunning display inspired by Shakespeare’s greatest themes – love, treachery, joy, conflict and life’s triumph over death. The display will conclude with an astonishing depiction of Shakespeare’s face, lit up in flames.

Alive with music and sound, Stratford-upon-Avon will be spectacularly illuminated from our Waterside home.

Arrive at the Bancroft Gardens from 10.30pm.
The display will start at approximately 10.40pm.

There are still tickets available for Henry IV Part I on 23 April – why not go along to the show beforehand?
