We're going to Party like it's 1599!
Shakespeare's Big Birthday - Sunday, 23 April, 2017. 2pm - 5pm. (ish!)
Our celebration of the bard's 400th sold out! So we're doing it again in 2017!
2016 saw the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's death. So we thought we'd throw a big birthday celebration for the 401st! And you are invited! It tours all the famous and not-so-famous places associated with the bard in London, starting on Borough High Street and ending up just north of the river, in Shakespeare's formal local boozer! We'll see a few other famous literary, historic and filmic (Harry Potter!) places too! The South Bank will be jumping with events by other organisations for St George's Day. So meet the bard and some of his friends and celebrate their famous words and characters...
It's part tour, part performance and we visit some truly remarkable spaces. Nick Hennegan, award-winning writer andCreative Producer is the host, because... "It was Shakespeare that got me into theatre when I adapted Henry V for one person back in 1992. Then I worked at Shakespeare's Globe for a while. I've had a lot of success with Henry V - Lion of England, so it'll be great fun sharing my artistic journey and having a quick toast to the bard!"
