Globe Theatre + London Walk

Friday 8th July @ 2:30 pm to 11:00 pm


Ken says . . . 

Update 5th July - bad news, all change

Ireen and I have both tested positive for Covid this morning, which means we won’t be out in public for at least 5 days and can’t go to The Globe. That has two consequences for the party:

  1. I won’t be leading anyone anywhere! If any of the party would like to step up and lead a walk from Farringdon per my timetable below they’re very welcome, but if not I suggest you gather at East Croydon, Wagamama or The Globe.
  2. There are now 4 x £5 standing tickets available. Let me know if you’d like to take any up.

From the bed of pain



Update 1st July - getting there, walking, eating:

This applies to everybody, not just those I know are coming to the Globe, because you may decide to join just for the walk, just for the food or whatever takes your fancy.

I’ll be getting the train from East Croydon to Farringdon, taking a leisurely, easy and largely off-road 2.5 mile stroll through some interesting parts of the City to the South Bank, gaining sustenance at Wagamama in Clink Street, then on to The Globe.

Please feel free to join me at East Croydon, Farringdon, Wagamama or The Globe itself. Here’s my schedule:

14.51 Direct train from East Croydon (Platform 2) to Farringdon, arriving 15.16

Trains are frequent these days – fallback is the 15.01, arriving 15.26

15.30 Set off walking from Farringdon
17.30ish Wagamama Clink Street.

They don’t take bookings, but they do squeeze people in!

19:00 At The Globe, ready for 19.30 performance
Later Possible beers, followed by train back to Croydon ad lib – Blackfriars is nearby and has fast trains to East Croydon.

Update 28th June:

  • I sold 17 tickets, and a few more COPSErs have bought them independently, so we'll have a sizeable Club presence!
  • the event is sold out, but we have one ticket returned, £5 standing. SOLD!
  • I'm reminded that I have to devise an interesting (optional) London walk beforehand. This will happen - watch this space.


From my April email:

Here’s a chance to Brush Up Your Shakespeare!

If you haven’t been to The Globe then you have a treat in prospect. I’m proposing a COPSE trip to see Much Ado About Nothing there at the 7.30 performance on Friday, 8th July.

I may also devise an interesting London walk to get there, but that’s a later stage of the planning . . .
