|Shakespeare's Restless World at Southwark Cathedral|
Monday 3rd December, 19:00
In this unique event, Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum, comes to Southwark Cathedral, Shakespeare’s parish church, to give an illustrated talk about the dynamic and dangerous world that Shakespeare knew. MacGregor offers us a fascinating three-way conversation between objects of the time – a dagger, a magical mirror, a woollen cap – the men and women whose lives they touched, and the words of Shakespeare himself. He builds a picture of a world which had expanded in size with the discovery of the New World yet was crumbling in many of its central assumptions about identity, religion and history.
This event is chaired by The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, The Dean of Southwark and Southwark Cathedral is in collaboration with Penguin Books and the British Museum.
The ticket entitles you to £5 off the publication Shakespeare’s Restless World by Neil MacGregor, available from the Cathedral Shop.
