37 screens along a 2.5 mile route between Westminster and Tower Bridge will play a series of specially-made 10 minute films, starring some of the world’s finest actors. Each film will explore an aspect of one of Shakespeare’s plays and will include scenes shot in the locations Shakespeare imagined when he wrote them.

Picture Cleopatra in front of the Pyramids, Shylock in Venice’s Jewish Ghetto, Hamlet on the rocks of Elsinore…The Complete Walk will be an interactive journey through Shakespeare’s life and work exactly 400 years on from his death
