Shakespeare's Globe Theatre: 'Julius Caesar'

Come along in the evening of Monday 21st July to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to see William Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'.


About the play

'Friends close, enemies closer'

When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed – which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar’s ghost be avenged?

Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power.

Seating tickets cost between £15 to £32, but if you are prepared to stand in the yard, tickets are only £5 each.  Book either seating or standing tickets here...

The best atmosphere to see plays at the Globe is standing in the yard (you can lean on the stage).  It does mean though that you have to stand for the play and as the Globe has no roof to protect the yard, if it rains you will get wet.


The play starts at 7:30pm and lasts about 2 hours.

Lookout for 'Cultureseekers' signs in the coffee shop, if you can't see us, give me a call or text.

Hope to see you there.

    Loved it. My first London Cultureseekers' Meetup event and definitely very good. Robert - I owe you £10 now I think for my annual sub? Julius Caesar is very much a play in two halves. They say there are lots of scenes cut out from the play (and on 24 July there's a talk about exactly that at The Globe which sounds interesting). Fantastic atmosphere. Still need to try being a groundling (is that the right word?). Robert - are there plans for another trip to The Globe? Very glad I went.

      Groundling experience was pretty special for this newbie too. Looking forward to the next play (Anthony &Cleopatra?) and meeting up with everyone :-)

    For one reason or another, I've been waiting 43 years to see Shakespeare again - this experience exceeded all expectations. It truly was worth the wait (& the standing)!!

    I'm sorry I couldn't make tonight, as there was a problem with the District line in Richmond.

    Hello, I am here at the Starbucks. has anyone else arrived yet?

    July 21, 2014

  • Adrianna

    My train is running late and I will probably only get there a little before 7.30 (if I don't miss the start!) so I don't think I'll be in time to meet at Starbucks before the show. :(

    July 21, 2014

  • Lizzie

    Thank you so much...but I was too late! So i have bought one for another day. Will change my RSVP.

    CALL THE BOX OFFICE NOW IF YOU NEED A STANDING TICKET FOR £5. THEY JUST HAD SOME RETURNS. [masked] 9919. WILL SAVE YOU FROM GETTING IN THE RETURNS QUEUE. NO BOOKING FEE!

    July 21, 2014

  • T

    Hi everyone, the returns queue opens at 6pm

    July 21, 2014

  • James R.

    Hi Robert, I didn't realise I needed to get a ticket in advance so I have booked for next week rather than risk the returns queue. Thanks anyway

    July 21, 2014

  • Gabs

    Hi. How much is the ticket for tonight?

    July 21, 2014

    • GARETH

      Gabs, you have to get ticket from the theatre box office and they are sold out, but you should be able to get a return there at 6:30.(Queue) "Groundling" tickets are the best "seats" in the house at £5.(But they are standing!)

    Looks like it's sold out! Oh well, should have been quicker off the mark. Cheers

    • Ritu

      I'm planning to come as well but could you confirm if the ticket can definitely be bought on the day.. Standing ticket to be specific.

    I'll try for returns too

    July 15, 2014

  • Rach V

    I have just read the comments. I will meet you all at Starbucks and look to get a returns ticket.

    July 15, 2014

  • Rach V

    I have wanted to experience The Globe for a while so it would be lovely to join you all. What is the majority if people doing standing tickets? Part of me wants a seat but I would rather sit with everyone. Is it allocated seating?

    July 15, 2014

  • Pilar

    Dear Robert, is there a Wait list for the return tickets ? How I can push for the ticket.

    July 14, 2014

    • Robert

      Just come along on the night, drop in at Starbucks and then join the returns queue, which is directly outside. You will easily get a returns ticket, but make sure you arrive by 6:30pm.

      July 14, 2014

  • elbroom

    I called the box office and the performance is sold out! Bah!

    July 12, 2014

    • Gareth

      Not sure its a good bet for me either on that day, but just started re-reading the play. Isn't it running throughout the summer?

      July 14, 2014

    • Robert

      You will be able to get a return on the night.

      2 · July 14, 2014

  • Clarisse B.

    Robert, do you think it's possible that you get 2 tickets in the return? I'd love to see the play and bring a friend with me. Let me know!

    July 12, 2014

    • Robert

      Yes, as long as you can get to Starbucks by 6:30pm (where we are meeting) and then join the queue for returns, which is outside. There are plenty of returns offered to the people in the queue for both seated and standing tickets.
