The Zürich Shakespeare Festival is part of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the English Department of the University of Zurich. A variety of events will take place over a period of three months, including performances, workshops, readings and culminating in a Midsummer Night’s Ball at the Volkshaus Zürich.


Actor Jeremy Irons is the patron of this celebration of all things Shakespeare.


The anniversary celebrations will also feature Queer Shakespeare, a collaboration between the university and Pink Apple, Zurich's lesbian and gay film festival.
