Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Open Day!

  • Apr 21, 2014 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Monday 21st April at either 12:30pm, 1:30pm or 2:30pm to visit Shakespeare’s Globe theatre!

About the day
The Globe always opens its doors for free on the weekend closest to Shakespeare’s birthday (23rd April) to celebrate his life and work with free performances on the Globe stage and you can look around the exhibition about his life and the London he lived in.

This open day is more important this year, as it marks the 450th aniversary since the birth of Shakespeare.

The event is totally free!

About the Globe
The current Globe Theatre was built in 1997 and is built almost exactly like the original Globe.  It was built by the American actor and film director Sam Wanamaker, who didn’t live to see its completion.

The original was built in 1599 (about 750 feet from the current one), stood for 14 years and played most of Shakespeare’s plays. It was destroyed by fire at the end of a performance of Shakespeare’s; Henry VIII in 1613.  It was rebuilt and survived until 1642.

When you arrive at the station, we will split people into small groups to explore the Globe together.  We are entering at three different time slots, so please choose the best time for you when you RSVP.

Afterwards, we will head to 'the Anchor pub' 34 Park Street (we have the Terrace bar reserved - go in the pub, veer right, go upstairs to the top where the balconies are) to chat over a few drinks.


Look out for the group sign outside the station:

If you can’t see us outside the station, please call.

Hope to see you there!

    Brilliant exhibition and performances on stage, it was more crowded than previous years due to the fact they held it on the bank holiday Monday. We will be seeing a few productions at the Globe this Summer, so keep a lookout!

  • GARETH

    Despite crowds (which were expected, being a Bank Holiday event at a popular venue), a really great day out and much quicker getting in than it looked at first. The " Sonnet to a Pork Pie" was brilliant. Thanks Robert.

    To everyone I met on the 12.30 visit thanks for making it such a fun and lovely afternoon. Another great event well hosted by Robert. The Globe exhibition and Theatre stage events were brilliant and entertaining.

  • Lynne W

    excellent - even the queue moved much faster than expected. Great day

    April 21, 2014

  • Susana

    Very interesting, though I would rather pay than a free day where the flow was pushing from every side. I couldnt stop or move forward as i wanted

    April 21, 2014

  • Susana

    At the end, i probably did the same than everybody else but on my own. It was fun to be honest. Exhibition and Theatre

  • Mary-Ann

    Helloo, we waited around London Bridge station and couldn't find anyone for the 2:30 group so eventually we went and joined the queue. Wasn't too bad, waited about 5 minutes or so. Would be nice properly meet you guys another time :)

    April 21, 2014

  • Susana

    What a day, i looked for you everywhere around. Nobody seen. I have run like in the marathon, i am having a litre of water at the bar. Robert , dont put me as a "no show" . I queue on my own. Hope to see you soon.

    Like Sarah-Jane, I decided against the unbelievably long queue. Wasn't aware it was a open day for everyone - had assumed it was something organised especially for this group….

    April 21, 2014

  • Sarah-Jane van der W.

    Arrived much too early for the 12.30 slot, so walked to theatre and saw the queue!! Wanted to phone and warn you, but my phone battery died. Walked back to the Tube but couldn't see the banner, so gave up. So sorry - I'm not the 'no show' type. Just got home to leave this message at 2pm.

    April 21, 2014

  • Yana

    Hi guys, I decided to start queueing by the Globe right away cause it will take another 45 mins from now to get there. Hope to see you later.
