RSC Artistic and Executive Directors, Gregory Doran and Catherine Mallyon, said:

“We are delighted to be part of the new Culture Mile Network in the heart of the City, building on our long-standing residency at the Barbican. 

We love our London audiences and are looking forward to sharing our rich programme of theatre, events, exhibitions and education activity with even more people as a result of this thrilling fusion of arts, culture and technology.  

As a company with an extraordinary reach, we can provide a national presence as part of the Culture Mile, ensuring its impact reaches across the country. Our deep relationships with schools in outer London boroughs also offer fantastic opportunities for young people in the capital, who might not otherwise have the chance to experience Shakespeare and live theatre. 

Great arts and culture are everyone's inheritance. The City is full of Shakespeare resonances and home to many of today's creative innovators. We are excited to play a part in place-making for a new generation and to bring that cultural inheritance to as many people as possible, in London, around the UK and across the world.”
