Event description

Description

This is a revelatory one hour 45 minutes walking tour on the NORTH bank of the river Thames (the Globe Theatre is on the South bank).

You will walk in Shakespeare's footsteps, and at various appropriate locations you will learn about his life, works, friends and complex love-life. Along the way your guide, former professional actor Declan McHugh, will reveal plaques, busts, and statues of the iconic Mr. Shakespeare, many little-known or hidden. You simply wouldn't find them by yourself. There are sections on his religion, sexuality and vocabulary.

PLUS Declan gives some stunning Shakespeare speeches along the way.

Thousands have come on the tour to hear Declan talk about Shakespeare with both passion and knowledge. Some have been well known including the creator of children's favourite 'Dora the Explorer', the writer of 'Smallville', internationally known artist Imants Tillers, six times New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feiler, the 'Swedish Laurence Olivier' actor Jan Malmsjo, Professor Owen Thompson, and others.

Oh, and by the way, Declan believes Shakespeare wrote the plays....

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Adults of any age can come (and do). When it comes to children, I generally find that children over the age of ten or eleven who have previously shown an interest in Shakespeare, have the best chance of enjoying the tour.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We meet outside Blackfriars UNDERGROUND Station. Look for the sign on my rucksack featuring a picture of Shakespeare's face. You won't miss the sign.

What can I bring into the event?

An open mind and an empty bladder! There are toilet facilities around to the left inside the overground section of the Station.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
