CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

But despite the apparently holy purpose of their journey these travellers reveal themselves as sinners rather than saints. The pilgrims contrasting and colourful backgrounds offer many different stories, from the serious and moral to the farcical and bawdy, proving that like Shakespeare after him, Chaucer was 'not for an age but for all time' .
Author Chaucer

Tales 1

Part I consists of The Knight, The Miller and Other Tales. The pilgrims' journey begins with the pageantry and spectacle of The Knight's Tale as chivalrous rivals compete for their love's affections. Later love is of a different vein in the shap of the bawdy Miller's Tale, before the farmyard chaos of the Nun's Priest's Tale as the vain cockerel Chaunticleer is abducted by the wily col-fox.
