All the planets are aligned for this one.
- London is the theatre capital of the world.
- Nick Day is one of the finest actors of his generation.
- “Tradition”, as Tevya says in Fiddler on the Roof. Getting a great actor to guide a Theatreland Walk is a London Walks tradition. A London Walks tradition that was started by Edward Petherbridge many years ago.
- Timing is everything. Nick Day’s Theatreland Walk is timed to coincide with the final performance of the greatest English actor of them all, David Garrick. “When Garrick took his final bow the applause was like the roll of muffled drums.”
