If you find yourself in the proximity of a statue and hearing voices today, don’t panic. Thirty-five statues have been chosen to be part of the campaign, Talking Statues, by Sing London, who have commissioned some of the nations most celebrated writers and actors to lend their voices and create talking statues across London and Manchester. To hear what they have to say simply swipe your phone on the nearby tag of one of the statues included, your phone rings and low and behold it’s Jeremy Paxman as London’s only cross-eyed statue, John Wilkes!
