Summer Season at Shakespeare’s Globe 2024

£5.00 – £65.00

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 Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the Shrew and Anthony and Cleopatra. 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 and, if you want to know more about the Globe itself, the tour is fabulous.

Tickets for Summer Season at the Globe

Tickets last year ranged 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 £65.00 and £59.00 tickets when you book two or more productions in the same transaction.

Missed out on booking a ticket? 2023 saw the Globe launch the £5 Rush. Every Friday at 11.00am, they released a limited number of £5 standing tickets for performances in the following week. These tickets were only available online and are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Full details for 2024 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. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
