Very enjoyable - Tim is energetic, engaging, and really knows his stuff
I wanted so desperately to see this and booked it a long time ago as a little window into the world which has become so narrow. And then! I thought it was at 1pm but it was actually at 11am, so I missed it. I am already booked for two other Context Conversations in the next month so you can believe I will be setting alarms for their correct times!
An excellent overview of the theatres associated with Shakespeare, including the Theatre, the Globe, and the Swan. Tim Barron was well informed and engaging.
I’ve experienced a dozen or so Context Travel seminars so far and have benefitted from each, but Tim Barron’s seminar on Shakespeare’s London far exceeded my expectations. His command of the subject spanned from identifying the many locations and history and relevance of each to his reciting lines from Shakespeare’s plays that breathed such charm and life into the subject. As he is also an actor, Tim added wonderful stories and theatre trivia along the way to create a complete experience for his guests. I simply couldn’t recommend this seminar with Tim any higher.
Tim Barron infuses his “walking” Conversation with a broad sense of theatre, history and culture. His personal experience as an actor brought life to his insertions of Shakespeare’s lines. Being somewhat familiar with both Shakespeare and London, I was pleased to learn new information and gain new insights into the playwright and his times.
