About this event

The City of London 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 fellow writer Ben Jonson said of Shakespeare, 'He was not of an age but for all time'!

Meet outside the entrance to St Giles, Cripplegate (at the Barbican Centre; near to Barbican and St Paul's stations). The tour will finish approximately two hours later near St Paul's Underground Station.
