In August 2016, our Co-Founder Matt Pinches realised a long-held ambition to trace Shakespeare's footsteps from Stratford-upon-Avon to Shakespeare's Globe. After nine-days solid walking Matt arrived at Shakespeare's Globe at 4pm on Sunday 21 August, after completing the 146 mile long Shakespeare Way (he actually did 155 miles!)

Matt has since made a 50-minute documentary film of the experience, which was premiered on 5 December 2017. We are planning to do another showing in early 2018 due to popular demand.  Check back for details.

In the meantime, you can read all about his experiences, special visits and insights on the Bard Walk Blog.

Matt undertook the Bard Walk to raise money for our New Beginnings Campaign.
