Shakespeare & Love: Walking Tours

William Shakespeare had lodgings near St Giles' Cripplegate, and his nephew, Edward Shakespeare, was baptised in the church. The historic First Folio was printed by William Jaggard in his print-shop “at the sign of the Half-Eagle and Key”, a site now under Barbican Tower, just over 400 years ago, and the Square Mile is full of associations with the Bard.

But what does Shakespeare have to say about love?

Join qualified City Guide David Charnick (Footprints of London) for a stroll through the City of London featuring site-specific readings from the poetry and drama of William Shakespeare. The tour explores aspects of love such as love of parent for child, love between friends - and finishes with his pronouncement on the durability of true love.

Tours run on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June, starting from St Giles Cripplegate at 4.30pm. Each tour lasts for one hour, leaving you time for refreshment and perhaps a bite to eat before the evening concert.
