Current Temporary Exhibition: Keith Michell: Hamlet on Bankside 

  • Australian-born actor, singer, composer, painter and illustrator, Keith Michell, was perhaps best known for his portrayals of King Henry VIII on film and television.
  • He also had an illustrious career on stage in numerous roles and was an accomplished artist.
  • Keith played Hamlet in 1972 in the ‘Bankside Globe Playhouse’, a temporary venue set up by Sam Wanamaker near the current Globe site.
  • Currently, visitors can see the display of two oil paintings by Keith, inspired by characters in the production, and ten of his prints inspired by Shakespeare's sonnets.

LittleBird Top Tip

Situated on the Bankside, why not make a day of it and pop by Tate Modern (just next door) or hop on a boat and go for a cruise on the Thames.
