Shakespeare’s Globe is without fail one of the cultural highlights of summer in London. It’s a rare chance to experience Shakespearean performances out in the open, as they were intended to be seen.
What to expect
The raucous audience atmosphere of olden days is encouraged, particularly at The Midnight Matinees, making for a night of truly immersive theatre. This season includes some of Shakespeare’s most iconic works, including Macbeth, The Comedy of Errors and As You Like It. Bonus events include Shakespeare Walks, live Ask-An-Actor sessions, study days, live cinema broadcasts and more. There are plenty of half-term storytelling events too; don’t miss the hilarious Midsummer Mechanicals!
Tickets for Summer Season at the Globe
Tickets range from £5.00 – £10.00 for yard tickets if you are happy to be a groundling (standing for the whole performance), up to £65.00 for the best seats in the lower, middle and upper galleries. You can save 25% on £65 and £59 tickets when you book two or more productions in the same transaction.
Missed out on booking a ticket? New this year at the Globe is the £5 Rush. Every Friday at 11.00am, they release a limited number of £5 standing tickets for performances in the following week. These tickets are only available online and are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Full details are available on the website.
Typically, hundreds of tickets are available at the lowest price for all the performances but be warned – if you find yourself in the Yard, be ready to get wet if it rains. It is a very special experience though, if your legs can last.Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice.
