Hats off to Will!

William Shakespeare, born 450 years ago today, was an actor, poet, and playwright. His works are still read and performed today. Even if you're not 'into' Shakespeare,  you probably use words and phrases coined by the Bard of Avon. 

"For goodness sake" - Henry VIII
"A wild goose chase" - Romeo and Juliet
"Swagger" - Henry V
"Addiction" - Othello
"Too much of a good thing" - As You Like It

Come along and celebrate the birth of the Bard - and World Book Night - with us 6 -7:45 this evening.
