2017 was the 453rd anniversary of the birth of William Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, England, on 23 April 1564. It is also the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Wellington Shakespeare Society on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March 1932. To celebrate this special occasion, the Society published its history in a concise and charming book, listing many of its milestones, achievements and important members.
