The Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning star talks about his love of British theatre and film
Join Rupert Everett for a romp through London’s Theatreland, the historic, glamorous and fabulous centre of UK theatre.
In the land that brought you Shakespeare, Harry Potter and Doctor Who, you’ll never be far from first rate drama. Head to London’s West End, home to more than 50 historic theatres and the biggest blockbusting shows or explore the rest of the UK where daring, experimental theatre sits comfortably aside classic British pantomime and mainstream performances. And don’t forget that Britain is one huge glorious film set, not surprising given the UK’s infinite variety, gorgeous landscapes and wealth of historic backdrops.
Why not discover where Rupert Everett filmed in Henley-on-Thames and Northamptonshire? Or go on the trail of Harry Potter at magnificent locations like Oxford University, Durham Cathedral and Pembrokeshire? You can even recreate the 1945 classic Brief Encounter at Carnforth Station, restored to its former glory much as David Lean left it after filming. Set-jetter or film fanatic, avid theatre fan or musical devotee you’ll find Britain always steals the show.
