The idea was hatched by the Falstaff Experience, a Tudor museum in Stratford-upon-Avon and the plan has just recently been endorsed by the Queen herself!
It is amazing that there is no such celebration of Shakespeare, and I think such a event or holiday is long overdue.
I would love to see a company of actors portray Shakespeare himself, his wife Anne Hathaway and others (like Richard Burbage, the lead actor in Shakespeare's company) running about the streets of Stratford, as they prepare to perform some scenes from the plays.
I hope you follow the Falstaff Experience on Facebook and or Twitter lend them your support -- and let them know how much you want the Shakespeare Night to happen!
