The high street of Corsham was a colourful sight on April the 23rd. The "Shakespeare Live" group staged a tribute to the bard on the 400th anniversary of his death.

They performed a kaleidoscope of popular pieces from Shakespeare to an appreciative audience.

I recognised bits from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. 

The local bookshop joined in the celebration with a Shakespeare themed quiz and window display.

And even the mother and child cafe got in on the act with free plastic ruffs for all. 

The sun shone, the audience laughed and clapped in all the right places and Corsham was a happy place to be.

Free ruffs - what a great idea! Sounds like a fun day.

Anything that is done to make Shakespeare continue to be popular for the younger generation is great. This does look like a lot of fun. Thank you for the pictures!
