RSC Artistic Director Greg Doran got the fireworks display underway.

Held at 10.40pm after that evening’s performance of Henry IV, Part I, the late start did not deter people from the fireworks, which were set to background music from among others, the Arctic Monkeys.

Although yesterday was the official anniversary of the Bard’s birth, the majority of the celebrations in Stratford are taking place on Saturday.

We want to hear how your celebrating this weekend! Send your news and pictures to news@stratford-herald.com
