World Shakespeare Congress 2016


31 July - 6 August 2016

Stratford-upon-Avon and London, UK

Creating and Re-creating Shakespeare



The International Shakespeare Association invites you to Stratford-upon-Avon and London for its Tenth World Shakespeare Congress:
‘Creating and Re-Creating Shakespeare’


The 2016 World Shakespeare Congress – four hundred years after the playwright’s death – will celebrate Shakespeare’s memory and the global cultural legacy of his works. Uniquely, ambitiously, fittingly, this quatercentenary World Congress will be based in not just one but two locations: in Shakespeare’s birthplace, and final resting-place, Stratford-upon-Avon; and in the city where he made his name and where his genius flourished—London.

The 2016 hosts – in Stratford, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and the University of Birmingham’s Shakespeare Institute; in London, Shakespeare’s Globe and the London Shakespeare Centre, King’s College London – look forward to welcoming delegates from around the world to share in a range of cultural and intellectual opportunities in the places where Shakespeare was born, acted, wrote and died.

We look forward to seeing you in Stratford and London in the summer of 2016.

How to register

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to celebrate Shakespeare and his works in the anniversary year of 2016, in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon and in London near his most famous workplace.
