Shakespeare's epic play performed in one of London's most historic locations.
England’s idealistic army marches to war, certain of a swift and glorious victory. France proudly rallies to defend her borders from invasion. But as nations clash, it is the common soldiers who pay the ultimate price in the bloody mud of the battlefield. Marking both the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the ongoing centenary of the First World War, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition presents a new production of Shakespeare’s Henry V in London's ancient Temple Church. Located in the secluded heart of London’s legal quarter between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Temple Church is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings best known as a key location in the recent movie adaptation of Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code. Temple Church lies off street in an oasis of ancient buildings, courtyards and gardens. Access is via the main gate on Tudor Street. From there, signs will lead you to the Church. If you are a first time visitor, please allow plenty of time to find the venue. Duration: About 2 hours 15 minutes, including one interval.
"Temple Church has a jaw-dropping splendour that hits you the very second you cross the threshold."
