Shakespeare's Way was devised by Peter Titchmarsh who set off on the new route after its launch at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon on 19 April 2006. Peter arrived at the Globe on Tuesday where he was greeted by the Globe's new artistic director Dominic Dromgoole. Dominic exchanged his book Will & Me: How Shakespeare Took Over My Life with a copy of Peter's guide to the pathway, Shakespeare's Way, a Journey of Imagination. In his book, Dominic Dromgoole describes the adventures of walking a similar route to Shakespeare's Way.
It is intended that the new pathway will help raise funds for
the Shakespeare Hospice - an independent charity with minimal government
support which relies on the generosity and support of the community
to carry out its work.
"No matter how short a route you choose you could sponsor yourself
for a small sum per mile and encourage your friends, family and
colleagues to also raise funds for the Shakespeare Hospice," explains
Peter Titchmarsh's book Shakespeare's Way, a Journey of Imagination. is an 80-page, full colour guide to the pathway and
is available from the Shakespeare's Way Association, St Mary's
Barn, Pillerton Priors, Warwick CV35 0PG for £7.75 including
Route of Shakespeare's Way Walk
