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 Anthony and Cleopatra, Twelfth Night and of course Romeo and Juliet. There will also be explorations of Shakespeare’s works, and a reimagining of Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Bonus events include Shakespeare Walks, live Ask-An-Actor sessions, study days, live cinema broadcasts and more. There’s even a discussion on Shakespeare in relation to our current climate crisis. There are plenty of half-term family events too.
Tickets for Summer Season at the Globe
Tickets range from £5.00–£55.00, and over 700 tickets will be available at the lowest price for all the performances. Just be ready to get wet if it rains!
