Win! A pair of tickets to En-Route at Stratford’s Theatre Royal
It is one of London’s great joys that you can live in the city your entire life and still be taken by surprise at something you walk past every day but may not have noticed.
It is this little gem that the makers of En Route from Stratford’s Theatre Royal have capitalised on as part of London’s Cultural Olympiad in East Village’s very surrounds. Rather than focusing on the area’s more recent changes, they have created a stripped-back mobile-phone based theatrical experience taking both strangers and visitors alike on an interactive tour of Stratford’s lesser-known charms.
You can take this day-time tour either alone or in groups of two or three, and will be sent a text message telling you where to turn up for the commencement of your tour. On arrival, you will then be sent off, given an iPod and headset and emergency numbers in case of “geographical, technical or psychological” issues.
We won’t spoil the journey for you but expect to see a great many contrasts on your experience, from the crumbled charm of the old East End to the glossy bustle of the new. You may be interrupted unexpectedly on your walk, whether by a text message, call or stranger; go with it and enjoy the show.
To invite London Living’s readers to get to know the surrounds of the village, we have three tickets to this theatrical experience, for this Saturday, to give away.
All you need to do, is let us know in the comments section below, what your favourite London hidden gem is. Our favourite entry will win the two tickets!
