Description

Image: collage of Shakespeare's works drawn from Wikimedia Commons

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
(Sonnet 18)

While Shakespeare referred in this most famous of his sonnets to the power of poetry to immortalise the beloved, the City of London itself bears a wealth of reminders to the presence of William Shakespeare.

This tour is an imaginative exploration of the City which - with the help of readings - evokes the life and work of arguably the greatest writer in the English language.

As his friend and contemporary Ben Jonson said of Shakespeare, 'He was not of an age but for all time!'
