To mark the 25th anniversary of Shakespeare’s Globe, Better Bankside has created an immersive Shakespeare Art Trail with 25 Shakespeare quotes appearing throughout the area, with works of photography and illustration, textile and graphic design, sound and light based projections alongside street art and installations.

To mark the 25th anniversary of Shakespeare’s Globe this year, Better Bankside has created an immersive art trail, to bring the Great Bard’s voice back to Southwark, one of his favourite haunts. Nestled around the Bankside area, 25 Shakespeare quotes have been chosen to illustrate the ways in which Shakespeare’s 400-year-old words continue to resonate, excite and inspire the artists and creative practitioners of today. With works of photography and illustration, textile and graphic design, sound and light-based projections alongside street art and installations by students of Borough Academy, the trail aims to bring to life the playwright’s works through a variety of mesmerising mediums. Bankside has collaborated with a myriad of artists, Shakespeare’s Globe, year 8 pupils from Borough Academy, Jack Arts, Art Academy, Bankside Gallery and a number of local businesses to create the trail.
