Events in London – Saturday 12 January

Need some inspiration for 12th January? Today saw the first performance of William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus at the Rose Theatre. You can’t see the original theatre anymore, but you can see what it looked like by visiting the big Shakespeare museum underneath the Globe Theatre.
