25th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s Sonnet Walks
A walk through Shakespeare's London brought alive by actors. You will hear Shakespeare's most compelling and inspiring speeches and some of the most exquisite Elizabethan love poetry in his sonnets. This marriage of our contemporary streets and London's hidden history leads you through evocative and historic buildings and streets familiar to Shakespeare. These walks through Westminster and the City, to the Globe, conceived by Mark Rylance have taken place annually in April for 25 years.
