Run nr 1596 – King Edward VII, 47 Broadway, Stratford E15 4BQ.Map
This is the pre-lube to London H3’s Run on Saturday 23 April 2016 commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. It is rumoured that Shakespeare was involved in a bout of heavy drinking with his mates Ben Jonson and Michael Drayton a few days before he died, which may have caused his death. This theory will be put to the test!
1596 is the year Shakespeare finished writing King John and Love’s Labours Won, which has been lost, unless it was published under a different title, and also when Sir Francis Drake died. So come dressed as your favourite Elizabethan or Shakespearean character.
We will also celebrate our very own Nut Sucker’s 40th birthday.

P-trail from Stratford Station (National Rail, DLR, Overground, & Central & Jubilee u/g lines). The trail will be marked each side of the old Stratford shopping centre (not Westfield) but not inside, so just walk straight through.
