#newyearsresolution Brush Up Your Shakespeare

Adam writes…

How are the New Year Resolutions going? 

Actor Lance Pearson's new year resolution is to lead a new poetry walk for London Walks to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death on Saturday 23rd April, 10.45am and Sunday 24th April, 2.30pm.

Shakespeare in London

2016 is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's passing. Celebrate his legacy with actor Lance Pierson on this guided walk around the city.

Although everyone knows that Shakespeare came from Stratford-upon-Avon, all of his famous working life was spent in London. Follow in his footsteps and see the places where he lived, wrote and acted. At each stop you will be further transported with extracts from Shakespeare's plays connected with that location.

See the original site of the Globe Theatre and its sister the Blackfriars Theatre, two houses where he lived and the very spot where we believe Othello, King Lear and Macbeth were written. The walk will pause at the modern Globe for a comfort break (and a chance to visit the shop) but won't visit the actual theatre.

'All the world's a stage' and your entrance will be at London Bridge Station. 'Our revels' will end near St Paul's with plenty of options for post-walk refreshments. The walk lasts about two hours.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
