The Complete Walk
Calling All Thespians:
The banks of the Thames is to be turned into a homage to Shakespeare to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death next year in a project called The Complete Walk.
The Globe have announced that for the weekend of the last weekend in April (23rd & 24th) the banks of the Thames between Westminster and Tower Bridge will be taken over by 37 giant TV screens each showing a specially created short film of each of Shakespeare’s 37 plays
Think pop-up cinema with each of the screens showing a 10 minute film repeated on a loop.
Entry is free but with 4 km to cover and over 6 hours of content to get through you might want to plan to make a whole weekend event of it.
For those unable to be in London The Globe is trying to get the project presented in cities across the UK and internationally throughout 2016 after which the films will be accessible on Globe Player.
Don’t miss this one-weekend-only historic day out celebrating one of Britain’s most internationally renowned artistic geniuses.
