2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and for that reason this year affords fans of the bard a huge number of opportunities to experience his work. Taking into account the many offerings from the BBC and from theatre companies around the country, there are just too many to list. However, Oxford may be better supplied than almost anywhere else.
Shakespeare Oxford 2016 is a huge festival created by a consortium of Oxford-based organisations. Collectively, these organisations are making a large chunk of Shakespeare's work available through stage productions, film, and dance as well as putting on numerous talks and exhibitions. Having set out to absorb as much Shakespeare as I can in this special year, I caught Love's Labour's Lost performed by the Oxford Shakespeare Company in the gardens of Wadham College.
