William Shakespeare’s Jubilee

An account of the Shakespeare Jubilee held in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1769, organised by David Garrick and attended by the culture vultures of the time. It was a washout, by the bye, with a massive downpour pretty well overshadowing the event. Interesting to hear of a time when Shakespeare was only on his way to being canonised as the Great Bard.
