Six word Saturday

To be, or not to be?

‘The Globe’ theatre, in miniature

This weekend finds me in London, on a blogging event with the Mercure hotel chain.  They are launching a major competition based on the 6 Friends Theory.  More of that to follow!

Just so that you know I haven’t been wasting my time, I popped into The Globe theatre at Bankside and did the tour.  It’s a reconstruction of Shakespeare’s original Globe, and I’ve wanted to visit for years. (another tick in box!)  Now I want to go back and see a play there. Maybe next trip?  The exhibition space was very interesting too, though I didn’t have nearly enough time. Here’s just a glimpse!

You could even be a model for a Shakespearean gown!

Fortunately, I didn’t have time before the bell rang for the tour, but the lady seemed to be enjoying herself.  I was disappointed with my photos of The Globe itself.  With dazzling bright skies (yes, I was lucky again!) and deep shade, I struggled to get clear images, but my memories are intact.  If I had longer I would love to visit the new indoor Jacobean Theatre in the complex. (one off the list, and two back on!)  Sam Wanamaker’s vision and tireless energy in driving the project has finally come to fruition.

That’s it for now!  It’s time for breakfast and some more sight seeing.  Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face to share your six words.  Apologies if I don’t respond to you for a while.  Home this evening!

    1. I feel a bit of a wimp, Madhu, but the timing was so bad for the competition entry. I did intend to have a go, though I was outstripped by a million miles by some of the youngsters. I’m no social media whizz and the world of Instagram has left me standing, let alone videos. If I’d had a little more time before the Algarve, just maybe… Not meant to be, I fear, but thank you very much for your vote of confidence. 🙂
