Campaigners in Stratford-upon-Avon have submitted proposals to The Queen to create a 'Shakespeare Day'.
The annual celebration would be similar to Burns Night in Scotland.
23rd April is St George's Day, but campaigners also want this day to be Shakespeare's Day, as this was the birthday of William Shakespeare.
Andy Bevan has the story.
