Cardiff University Libraries mark 450 years since Shakespeare’s birth

Shakespeare 450

To celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, our libraries are holding a week long Shakespeare 450 celebration from 1st – 5th December.

We will be hosting Shakespeare-themed displays, as well as competitions throughout the week:

  • The Arts and Social Studies Library will be promoting Shakespeare-related materials in the SCOLAR special collections.
  • Take part in a ‘Shakespeare in Wales’ seminar in the Arts and Social Studies Library.
  • Vote for your favourite Shakespeare play when you visit a library that week, and be entered into a prize draw to win theatre gift vouchers.
  • Exercise your grey cells by encapsulating the plot of your favourite Shakespeare play in the space of a tweet! Just #CUShakespeare450 to be in with the chance of winning a prize!
  • Join the School of Music and the Music Library for ‘The Influence of Shakespeare’ on Thursday 4th December, 12.30 – 1.30pm in the School of Music. Music students and Library staff will join together for readings and musical settings from Shakespeare.
  • And much more…

Use the hashtag #CUShakespeare450 and keep your eyes on @CardiffUniLib on Twitter throughout the week to follow the latest on what is happening in your library.
