Happy Bard Day

In honor of William Shakespeare’s 448th birthday, the World Shakespeare Festival officially kicks off today in London.

William Shakespeare, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre: Globe to Globe Festival, London Olympics, Shakespeare Plays, Shakespeare Quiz, William Shakespeare Birthday, fun and games,

It’s the biggest celebration of Shakespeare ever staged. Thousands of artists from around the world will take part in almost 70 productions across the UK and online. The highlight for me: Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre: Globe to Globe Festival with the entire canon being performed in different languages. (Please take some of those works on tour.)

The World Shakespeare Festival runs from 23 April to November 2012. Part of the London 2012 Festival – the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad – it brings in leading artists from all over the world.

Here’s your chance to test your knowledge of the Bard’s works. Let us know how you do (no Googling!).
