Celebrate Shakepeare's birthday at Guildhall Art Gallery

get busy with the Bard

Guildhall Art Gallery
Aldermanbury 5 Guildhall The City EC2P 2EJ
This year marks the 400th birthday of Britain's, if not the world's, most famous playwright. There are dozens of events taking place throughout the capital including talks, operas and of course plays, but one that caught our beady eye was the Visscher Redrawn exhibition at the Guildhall Gallery. Here an iconic engraving by medieval artist Visscher has been placed alongside a contemporary artwork of the same scene to compare how much, or how little London has changed since the Bard's heyday. The exhibit is on till November 20th.
