1621 Lord Mayor's Show coming in October 2021

Mark your calendars!

In a Society for Renaissance Studies-funded collaboration between Edward's Boys (Perry Mills) and Beyond Shakespeare (Robert Crighton), Professor Tracey Hill (Bath Spa University) will be directing the staging of at least one, and ideally more, of the discrete devices from the 1621 Lord Mayor's Show for Draper Edward Barkham on its original date, 29 October 2021.

The devices will be performed as close as possible to the original locations on Cheapside, right in the heart of the City of London, and featuring authentic child performers and musicians. Ancillary roles such as whifflers will be performed by volunteers.

The team is keen to hear from anyone who would like to get involved in any capacity. Interested? Contact Professor Hill via email (t.hill@bathspa.ac.uk) or DM (@tracelarkhall).
