The Muse Transformed!

    Newer Older

    The bronze *'Muse' situated in front of the Marlowe Theatre in The Friars has had a facelift.
    On the right is the Muse in August 2009: on the left in October 2011, just after specialist cleaning.
    Around the plinth are mini-statues of characters from Marlowe's plays, including 'Dr Faustus', and 'Tamburlaine'.
    The new Theatre reopened on October 4 2011 after a three year rebuild.
    Looks lovely now!

    * Officially the statue is called The Marlowe Memorial, but I'm not a purist!
