All Shakespeare lovers are in for a treat,

On April 26 through 28, Mark Rylance and 23 of his actor friends are returning to Westminster Abbey to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. Currently sold out, but the Globe urges the interested to check back in case more tickets become available.  

All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits is a collection of fleeting and intimate encounters with Shakespeare’s drama, poetry and song beneath the soaring ribs of London’s tremendous Westminster Abbey.

Sonnet Walks / Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

A walk through Shakespeare’s London brought alive by actors. You will hear Shakespeare’s most compelling and inspiring speeches and some of the most exquisite Elizabethan love poetry in his sonnets. This marriage of our contemporary landscape and London’s hidden past leads you through evocative and historic buildings and streets familiar to Shakespeare. These walks through Westminster and the City to the Globe, conceived by Mark Rylance, have taken place annually in April for over 25 years.
