The date is also the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and his work will be commemorated by two actors who will perform excerpts from As You Like It and The Taming of the Shrew. The scenes will be performed at: Angel Hill (11.00am), Langton Place (12.00), Cornhill (1.00) and Charter Square, arc (2.00pm).

The town will be flying the flag of St George and businesses and the regular Saturday market stalls will be bedecked with red and white bunting in celebration.
