A visit to the Exhibition includes a guided tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre where storytellers take you on a fascinating half-hour tour of the auditorium.
As a visitor to the Exhibition, you will discover how shows were produced in the theaters during Shakespeare's time, from writing and rehearsals to music, dance, and performance.
Learn about the traditional crafts and techniques used during the process of rebuilding the Globe and find out how special effects were produced in Shakespeare's time from thunder and lightning to flying on stage and realistic blood and gore.
Listen to recordings from some of the most Shakespearean performances ever or join the cast and add your own voice to a scene recorded by Globe actors. Create your own Shakespearean phrases in the word jungle, watch a sword-fighting display and browse the costume collection, where you can find out about the extraordinary methods used in creating clothes 400 years ago.
Afternoon Tea Upgrade Option -
After visiting The globe, you can upgrade to enjoy a quintessentially British afternoon tea with a twist. Served at The globe's Swan restaurant, the tea is inspired by scenes from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream.
Sip prosecco and your choice of tea, and indulge in a delectable selection of finger sandwiches, scones, and cakes many of which can be traced back to characters and food featured in the play. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)
Please note: If you have opted for the upgrade, please arrive by 11:45 am (Monday to Saturday) or 10:45 am (Sunday) to ensure you have enough time for the exhibition and tour before the afternoon tea.
