(running time 3 hours, inc 30 minutes walking); 15
(conc 10)
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=1024
Join local legend Harry Bailey, landlord of the Tabard
Inn Southwark, and a motley collection of pilgrims as
they wend their way through Kent en-route to Canterbury
Cathedral. Along the way, each pilgrim is invited to
compete in a story telling competition. The pilgrim
with the best tale will win a slap up meal at the
Tabard when the pilgrimage returns to Southwark. Join,
amongst others, the lusty Wife of Bath, the prim
Prioress, the flatulent Cook and the heroic Knight, as
they tell their famous, irreverent, magical, bawdy
tales along the route. Chaucer's epic poem is brought
to life in a vibrant modern adaptation that places the
tales on the streets the pilgrims trod. Starting
outside the George Inn on Borough High Street,
Southwark Playhouse will take you along the  Pilgrims
Way via the back streets parks and famous sites of
Borough, culminating outside Southwark Cathedral.
