Alleyn walking tour

April 12, 2019 - May 5, 2019

The Rose Playhouse

Join us for a walking tour all about the extraordinary life of Edward Alleyn, the principal actor at The Rose Playhouse in the 16th Century. 

Amble along the streets of London with our knowledgable volunteer, visiting the site of Alleyn's playhouse and learning about Tudor theatre practice. The 2-hour tour will start at Moorgate Underground station and end at Farringdon Underground station, via theatre sites in the Barbican and Clerkenwell, as well as the office of the Master of the Revels. And for the Bard fanatics amongst you, there's some Shakespeare thrown in there too for good measure!
