Shakespeare in London, Shakespeare in Performance

London Bridge tube station, London

Guided by Lance

Short versionShakespeare’s Anniversary, Shakespeare in Performance, Shakespeare Perambulated…

Long version: It’s the triple anniversary:  1) Shakespeare’s birthday in 1564, 2) the anniversary of his death in 1616,  and 3) St. George’s Day. St. George, the patron saint of England. How perfect is that, that the birthday (and the day he died) of the great national poet should coincide with the Day of the patron saint of this land? In short, this one’s a natural. Can there be a better way to stride through a couple of hours on the big Shakespeare and England anniversary date? And a “natural” as well because the walk is guided by “the Voice” – Lance. The blessed one – blessed with that wonderful voice, that god-given voice. No less blessed, the people who get to listen to him mellifluously-ing Shakespeare – right there, in situ – breathing the same air Shakespeare breathed, seeing the same river he saw, poring over the same matters he gave the most sublime expression to – it doesn’t come any more special than that. 


The Shakespeare Anniversary walk takes place at 2 pm on xxxxxxx. Meet Lance just outside the Duke Street Hill exit of London BridgeTube.

If you can’t make one of Lance‘s regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have his Shakespeare in Performance walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.


Don’t just take it from us.
