Pilgrim's Progress - St James Church, Muswell Hill

I hope that in the near future, St James’s production of Pilgrim’s Progress will be toured throughout London & beyond as it is utterly fantastic. It would be a real shame for more people not to get the opportunity to see such a captivating and original interpretation of John Bunyan's narrative.

Everything from the acting, live music, lighting, costumes, etc, was truly impressive. It was an amazing show, which not only illustrates the depth of talent that can be enjoyed locally, but is also a testament to the way hard work & focus can turn an artistic idea into a solid reality that has the power to affect many. Here are some photographs from a spectacular show.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Although show time stops during the colder months, Shakespeare’s Globe still remains open to visitors who can explore the museum and enjoy guided tours around the iconic theatre. Shakespeare’s Globe is a reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre. It is located on the Southbank of the River Thames, a few hundred yards from its original site.

I recently visited the Globe for the first time and was struck by the visual impact of the building. I look forward to returning during the summer to observe a play at Shakespeare’s Globe. In the meantime I have posted some photographs from my visit below.
