Film-Memorial Procession in English Country Town (1915)
Just under 30 seconds long, this short film gives a glimpse into celebrations in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1915. Accompanying teaching notes use the film to spark conversations and inspiration for English, history and music.

Residents of Stratford-upon-Avon are treated to a double dose of patriotic celebration every 23rd April, when St George's Day coincides with William Shakespeare's birthday! 

Marked in much the same way for 200 years, the town’s inhabitants carry wreaths and flowers to the Bard's tomb in Holy Trinity Church.
