London events on 23rd April
Need some inspiration for 23rd April? William Shakespeare was born on this day in 1564. And he died on this day as well, in 1616. If you have a guided tour of the Globe Theatre then you can visit the Shakespeare museum underneath the stage. Or how about watching one of Shakespeare’s plays?
