“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more”

- Henry V

As The Globe explore the eclectic nature of our ‘sceptred isle’ on their stages this summer, they wanted the accompanying visuals to reflect the eclectic nature of our culture. They have brought diverse, modern visual representations of our nation into dialogue with Shakespeare’s plays, with each hopefully shedding light on the other.

I'm so honoured that they have chosen this image from my mam's Juvenile Jazz Bands series to accompany Henry V. I'm a very proud daughter indeed and really looking forward to seeing these posters pop up on the London underground over summer.

Thank you to Artimage for the dream collaboration.

Catch Henry V at Shakespeare's Globe, 30 April – 11 October 2019.
