Verily, things be busy...!

April 14, 2018

It’s been a busy few weeks in London Literary Pub Crawl land. We’ve had three parties this week, including our first ‘Coffee Shop’ Tour - the non-alcoholic version of the Literary Pub Crawl - for 35 young students from South Africa. If you’ve been to see us you’ll know there are a few ‘adult’ stories. We took those out of course and the whole group were fantastic and really seemed to get what we were offering. 

Later we hosted a private tour with two Americans. Rusty was the Father and the son was training to be a journalist. It was great to meet them too. Rust used to sell Guinness in California! We had a few more
stops than usual including a pub where Jimmy Hendrix played his first jam session in London. And it ended up with a round of shots!



We’ve a birthday party and hen party coming up, along with our regular Saturday shows.

But next week, Sunday 22nd April, it'll be time to Party like its 1599!

Yep, it's our now legendary Shakespeare Birthday Tour!  If you can't join us live, see us on Facebook Live at 3pm, BST.

Verily, t'will be great!

 

The Snow Must Go On...!

March 9, 2018
Sorry... I mean the SHOW must go on!  And it is.  We've had snow in London!  It doesn't really happen very often and so when it does, we're not really prepared for it.  I think the last time the snow settled here was around five years ago.  Our cold spell only lasted about a week, which was quite long enough, thank you very much!  But now the weather has warmed up and it feels properly like Spring.  The daffodils are already out.  And I'm pleased to report, that in spite of the weather, the L...

Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14, 2018
Happy Valentine' Day.

I think Anthony Burgess, a writer we feature in our show, summed up the day perfectly in 'The Paris Review.'  He wrote, "The world has so much solace to offer: love, food, music, the immense variety of race and language, literature, the pleasure of artistic creation." 

Yep!

Harry Potter and The Final Draft..!

September 2, 2017
I'm writing THE screenplay.  You know, the one that is going to sell for thousands - if not millions - and means I don't have to worry about paying the rent ever again.  Because I can tell you, with rents as high as they are in London, it's a very big worry indeed!

I actually wrote the story for the screenplay when I was still at school in Birmingham.  That's a few years ago, believe me!  It's about a boy called George, who is 12 years old and when all the adults in the world disappear, includ...

Summer in the City. Or out of it!

August 21, 2017
If you are coming to London to see us, then now is a good time to come. Summers never get TOO hot in the UK - it's not like the sweltering city scape of places like New York.  But us Londoners like to get out of town occasionally.  We've got the Hop fields of Kent on our doorstep.  A little further away, 90-odd miles north-east of London on the Suffolk coast is Southwold. It's a charming place - sometimes known as "Chelsea-on-Sea" because of the number of well-heeled Londoners that go there. ...

About Us


Nick Hennegan Hello. I'm Nick Hennegan and I started the London Literary Pub Crawl. Most of the blogs on here will be by me. I've always written but my first theatrical success was an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Henry V' (www.HenryVPlay.com) I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. (www.MaverickTheatre.co.uk) This pub crawl is really more a promenade theatre performance than a tour and I'm running it with a bunch of enthusiastic local actors and writers. I love sharing my passion for the area and the artists. I also present a radio show on Resonance 104.4fm - London's Arts Station and a podcast on our site. If you haven't visited us in London yet, I hope you'll come soon. And feel free to leave comments or email me at nick @ LondonLiteraryPubCrawl.com - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
