Step into an immersive tour through London’s history, narrated by the animals who once lived here.
Beasts of London explores the fascinating role animals have played in shaping the capital. Be guided through time, from the Roman era through Medieval London and right up to present day, narrated by the beasts themselves. Discover how animals – from lions and elephants, to horses, rats and pigeons – have shaped the city and its beastly history.
Voicing these animals are a host of household names. Brian Blessed, Pam Ferris, Nish Kumar, Stephen Mangan, Angellica Bell and Joe Pasquale will be voicing some of the animals who once roamed this city, with more names to be announced.
Inspired by objects in the Museum’s collection and created in partnership with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Beasts of London will be a fully interactive digital installation using video projection mapping.
Students from the School will be voicing other characters; its production artists are designing the experience and its composers creating the musical soundtrack. The exhibition will be a fully interactive multi-sensory digital installation with video projection mapping created by Guildhall Video Design for Live Performance artists.
