“This Woodden O”

12th June  – According to the Shakespearean scholar Steve Sohmer, on this day in 1599, the original  “Globe Theatre” was opened in Southwark (see also the April 22nd blog on “Shakespeare in London”).   

The site of the original “Globe” is visited on our Thursday afternoon walk “Historic Southwark – Shakespeare’s London and more”, together with Sam Wanamaker’s reconstruction  on Bankside.

A special themed walk on “The London that Shakespeare knew” is also available on request.
