Location - The Abbey

Mark Rylance and Shakespeare’s Globe return to Westminster Abbey for a unique event to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday.

Join their company of 23 actors for three nights only, as they create a beautiful and unexpected world within this sacred space. Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover, behold a great Monarch or bide awhile with a lone and prayerful soul as you explore the Abbey on this special evening.

All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits is a collection of fleeting and intimate encounters with Shakespeare’s drama, poetry and song beneath the soaring ribs of Westminster Abbey.

During the performance, you will move around between actors and areas at your own pace, but there are various spots within the Abbey where you’ll be able to pause, have a seat and take in the magnificent surroundings.

‘Like the best of birthday presents…not what you expected, but just what you wanted.’ - The Times on 2017's event
