Mention Stratford-on-Avon to people around the world and the instant reaction is ‘Shakespeare.’
The market town on the banks of the River Avon is never going to be able to escape the shadow of one of the most famous people who have ever lived – and nor does it want to. But there is more to Stratford than the Bard. It is a busy and bustling town, which while proud of its heritage, has plenty more to shout about, and the Observer has been the voice of the townspeople and the surrounding area for over two decades.
Our prose may not exactly be Shakespearean, but just as Shakespeare presented his characters for the enjoyment of others, we have been honoured to report on the lives and goings-on in the district for the benefit of our readers for over 20 years. All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances… and the Stratford Observer is always there covering the story!
