Shakespeare’s Theaters Return to London

By February 13, 2013

Follow me on:

Some 400 years ago, Shakespeare was "king pin" in Shoreditch - London's theatre central in Shakespeare's day.

Finally, it looks like the drama may return to some of Shakespeare's venues: The Curtain and The Theatre.

The sites of these two Jacobean theatres are seeking to become theatres once again and now have planning permissions in place.

The Theatre was the original Globe Theatre and was the home of Richard Burbage's The Lord Chamberlain's Men. It was dismantled and reconstructed across the River Thames after a dispute with the landowner got out of hand!

The Curtain was discovered last year and can also be traced to the Lord Chamberlain's Men. It is hoped this venue will reopen as an open-air amphitheatre.

If your hose is too short, or you want a longer power
cable, you can probably get replacements, rather than having
to buy a new cleaner. You will find yourself picking up dirt you
never imagined was around, and which you would not be
capable of getting out with many other vacuum cleaners.

Try to find brands which are highly regarded, instead of the higher-end models which will
cause you to spend a fortune.
