If statues could talk what would they say? What stories would they have to tell?

Sing London have commissioned some of the nation's most celebrated writers and actors to animate 35 public statues across London and Manchester. Pass a Talking Statue, swipe your phone on a nearby tag and hey presto: your phone rings. And it's Queen Victoria on the line... or Peter Pan... or Abe Lincoln... Using drama, humour and location technology, Talking Statues breathes new life into the statues that surround us all. 

We've been busy trying them out and love Sherlock Holmes outside Baker Street station, and Peter Pan next to the Serpentine but they are all over London and are super easy to use, so keep your eyes peeled for the code to swipe. Or why not make up your own statue stories: a brilliant way to engage with London's monuments and breathe new life into history. 

Let us know which is your favourite statue in our review section below!
