The Royal Parks and Royal Parks Foundation have partnered with Sing London to magically bring to life the 100-year-old Peter Pan statue.

Originally commissioned and paid for by the book's author JM Barrie, passers-by can now swipe their smartphones on a nearby tag and get a personal 'call back' from Peter.

On the other end of the line, they will hear a dramatic three-minute Peter Pan monologue that has been written by acclaimed playwright Ella Hickson and voiced by Daniel Roche, star of popular BBC TV series Outnumbered.

Appealing to young and old alike, the audio transports the listener back to Neverland, the home of Peter Pan and his gang of Lost Boys.

Talking Statues is a new initiative which sees 35 statues animated across London and Manchester. Arts organisation, Sing London, has commissioned some of the nation's most celebrated writers to create the characterful monologues.

Two more Royal Parks' statues will join the project at a later date - Achilles and Isis, both in London's Hyde Park. A script for Achilles has already been written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz; the Isis monologue will be chosen from entries to a public competition launching today, featuring this and other statues.
