2416. Seems unimaginable doesn’t it? As unimaginable as 2016 would have been when Shakespeare died in 1616. And yet his work continues to live on, not only in performances of his plays, but in novels inspired by them, in studies of his life, times and work, in film and tv adaptations and of course embedded in our everyday language. Here then, is our celebration of the great bard, his work and his legacy. Will he still be around in another 400 years? We’re pretty confident he will be!
