About Shakespeare’s Globe
Shakespeare’s Globe has become one of the most popular visitor destinations in the UK, at the heart of the regeneration of London’s Bankside. Shakespeare’s Globe is a charity and continues to operate without annual government funding.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director, Dominic Dromgoole, the theatre season plays in repertory from April to October annually, and has gained an international reputation for performance excellence. Globe Education, directed by Patrick Spottiswoode, is one of the largest arts education departments in the country, and shares its approaches to the teaching of Shakespeare with over 100,000 students a year. Shakespeare’s Globe Tour and Exhibition is open all year round and is the world’s only permanent exhibition dedicated to Shakespeare’s theatrical career.
Other on-site facilities include the Swan Bar and Brasserie and private entertaining rooms, with stunning views over the River Thames. The Globe Shop sells a wide range of gifts and books, aimed to increase the enjoyment and understanding of Shakespeare.
