What you'll do

Hear tales of fascinating events and personal anecdotes not known to the general public. We’ll discuss actors, such as the 13-year-old who played Hamlet, and ghosts including the infamous Man in Grey and the skeleton with a dagger in his ribs. We'll conclude with an optional drink or meal in a venue popular with the theatre crowd, and I'll provide exclusive access to discounted theater tickets.

Where you'll be

We'll meet under the Portico of St. Paul's Church in Covent Garden, where the opening scene of "My Fair Lady" takes place. From there, we'll visit the actual locations where London theatre began in West End's Theatreland. This includes the Royal Opera House and the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which dates back to 1663.
