‘’If music be the food of love play on’’ – Twelfth Night, Act 1, Scene 1 

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours, we wish you a joyful day. If you haven’t visited us recently we welcome you to this very musical season at the Globe with a range of events exploring the music of Shakespeare's stage. There are plenty of opportunities to take part and get more deeply involved with performance and lively lectures whether you are young or old.

Every family has its differences, and it can be tricky planning a day out to please them all. This half term we have demonstrations and activities that cater for ‘the sword fighter’ ‘the one who likes to play dressing up ’ and everyone in between.

Public booking has now opened for our Season of Plenty which crams in more plays than ever before, addressing subjects as diverse as magic and historical battles to the first female university graduates.

What are you looking forward to?
