Follow the lutenist from Moorgate tube to Southwark Cathedral stopping at the Shakespeare Garden in Love Lane, The Bard’s former digs, his friend John Donne’s place of work, his replica place of work, the site of his real place of work, the bear pit (the grizzly Harry Hunks’ place of work) and Southwark Cathedral where he buried his brother Ned Shakespeare.
Rick will be standing outside Moorgate tube busking with lute from 1.30 pm on Friday 23 April. Translation: you can’t miss him. With that lute and that costume you’ll certainly see him. And, yes, you’ll hear him. He gives, shall we say, to airy nothing a local habitation and a name.
O mistress mine
Where the bee sucks
Full fathom five
Greensleeves
