Sir Mark Rylance will return to Westminster Abbey with a company of 23 actors bringing the words of William Shakespeare to life for six special performances in April.

Join their company of actors for three nights only, as they create an unexpected interactive world within this sacred space.

Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover, behold a great Monarch or bide awhile with a lone and prayerful soul as you explore the Abbey on this special evening.

The performance, 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 Westminster Abbey.

During the performance, you will move around between actors and areas at your own pace, but there are various spots within the Abbey where you’ll be able to pause, have a seat and take in the ancient building.

  • Saturday 28th April at 6.30pm and 8.30pm

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
