On This Day – 26 April

Posted on: Wed 26 Apr 2017

The 26th of April is a significant date to one of the most well known historical figures, William Shakespeare. It was his baptism date…in fact we don’t actually know when Shakespeare was born, it’s completely lost to time. His baptism date is the closest thing we know for sure to his birth, so it’s commonly used as a stand in for his birth date.

But that’s not all that April 26th goes down in history for, Tim Sutherland joined Jennie Lenman to give us the lowdown.
