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 King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest. Bonus events include Shakespeare Walks, live Ask-An-Actor sessions, study days, live cinema broadcasts and more. There are plenty of half-term family events too.
Tickets for Summer Season at the Globe
Tickets range from £5.00 for yard tickets if you are happy to be a groundling (standing for the whole performance), up to £64.00 for the best seats in the lower, middle and upper galleries. If you purchase tickets for three or more productions you can get a 30% discount.
Typically, over 700 tickets are available at the lowest price for all the performances, but there may be some restrictions on this due to COVID-19. If you find yourself in the yard, be ready to get wet if it rains!
