In the Beginning archiveExactly four hundred years ago, in 1611, a group of scholars gathered together in the Jerusalem Chamber at Westminster Abbey to finalise their translation of the King James Version of the Bible (KJV).To celebrate the publication of this remarkable text, the Bush has teamed up with Westminster Abbey to create a unique, intimate and highly theatrical event. In The Beginning will see audiences taken, in intimate groups, on an extraordinary journey round the Abbey - accessing areas that are rarely open to the public. As you travel round the building, an ensemble of performers will read carefully chosen extracts from the KJV which will cast a fresh and surprising light on the Abbey itself. Tours will run regularly from 6.30pm - 9.30pm. Each tour will last approximately 40 minutes. Tel: 020 8743 5050
