post-image 21st April 2016

2016 marks 400 since the death of William Shakespeare, and the capital was fit to burst with events celebrating his name. As part of these events, on April the 23rd – 25th, Shakespeare’s Globe debuted ‘The Complete Walk’; a unique and interactive walking experience through central London featuring two film screens in Jubilee Gardens.

The ‘walk’ consisted of a 2.5 mile stroll through Tower Bridge and Westminster Bridge where a number of outdoor screens played 37 specially made 10-minute films of Shakespeare’s works. These films continually played from 10am – 10pm on Saturday and 10am – 8pm on Sunday. Jubilee Gardens hosted two screens along this route, featuring The Taming of the Shrew (Screen 3) and Henry VI Part 1 (Screen 4).

Each film was shot within one of the locations Shakespeare imagined when writing his plays, and involves world renowned actors. These special explorations of his works were broadcast along a scenic, planned route in the very city in which Shakespeare lived.
