37 specially-made 10 minute films will be screened along the iconic 2.5 mile stretch between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge. Parham was the set for Twelfth Night, which is screen number 25.
Each film explores one of Shakespeare’s plays and includes scenes shot in the locations Shakespeare imagined when he wrote them. Picture Cleopatra in front of the Pyramids, Shylock in Venice’s former Jewish Ghetto, Hamlet on the rocks of Elsinore and much more.
These scenes will be combined with extracts from the BFI’s Silent Shakespeare series and our Globe On Screen filmed stage productions. Featuring a host of the world’s greatest actors, The Complete Walk is an accessible, interactive way to celebrate Shakespeare’s life, work and legacy, exactly 400 years on from his death.
The films will play continuously throughout the weekend enabling you to join us for the entire route or to dip in and out of your favourite plays as you stroll along the river.
