This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare and there are commemorative events all over the world. Costa Coffee has teamed up with Shanghai Grand Theatre to combine coffee and theatrical art.
On Shakespeare’s birthday of April 23, Costa Coffee will hold a two-day gala party. Visitors can try to make a coffee painting of the famous English author. Three winners will be selected by vote and given a package of tickets to all Shakespeare plays performed at Shanghai Grand Theater in 2016. Costa baristas will dress like characters in Shakespeare dramas to serve customers at the party.
From April 15-24, Costa Coffee outlets in Shanghai invite customers to take a selfie wearing badges or makeup provided in the outlets and post their pictures on Costa Coffee Weibo and WeChat to win tickets to the gala party.
