2016 celebrates the 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare.  Thus to pay tribute to the bard, various organisations and Universities have planned to come together to celebrate his works. One such collaboration is among the University of Birmingham, Ex Cathedra Choir and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

The University of Birmingham would be producing an online performance of the historic Code starring famous actor Sam West. This performance would be taking place in the final resting place of Shakespeare. According to Internationally acclaimed stage actor, Sam West, Garrick is an amazing figure – someone who could seem at once more realistic and more elevated than previous actors, and who got the theatre taken seriously as never before. And with this poem he got Shakespeare taken seriously, as a focus for real public social action, right across Europe. Without this Ode, there’d be no National Theatre and no Royal Shakespeare Company, and I’d probably never have had a job. So it’s wonderful to get the chance to bring it back to life.”

Additionally, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy would also be paying a modern tribute to the famous writer and poet, through her poems.
