Shakespeare Lives was a year-long global programme of events and activities celebrating William Shakespeare’s work on the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016. The programme was run by the British Council and the GREAT Britain campaign and celebrated Shakespeare as a playwright for all people and all nations. More than 140 countries took part in the festivities, with people experiencing Shakespeare through film screenings, exhibitions, performances and in schools, alongside a programme of unique online collaborations.
There is a wide range of online resources available, produced as part of Shakespeare Lives.
- Innovative short films inspired by Shakespeare

- Educational resources for schools and English language learners of all ages, in the UK and around the world
