Beasts of London
Museum of London - EC2Y 5HN, London
Running Time: 1 hours
Step into an immersive tour through London's history, narrated by the animals who once lived here.
Beasts of London explores the fascinating role animals have played in shaping the capital. Be guided through time, from the Roman era through Medieval London and right up to present day, narrated by the beasts themselves. Discover how animals ? from lions and elephants, to horses, rats and pigeons ? have shaped the city and its beastly history.
Voicing these animals are a host of household names. Brian Blessed, Pam Ferris, Nish Kumar, Stephen Mangan, Angellica Bell and Joe Pasquale will be voicing some of the animals who once roamed this city, with more names to be announced.
Inspired by objects in our collection and created in partnership with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Beasts of London will be a fully interactive digital installation using video projection mapping.
