Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition and Theatre Tour

Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition and Theatre Tour

Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition and Theatre Tour is an opportunity to experience English theatre of 1600s, the time when the legendary playwright, William Shakespeare himself worked at the Globe.

 

The Globe Theatre, located on London’s Southbank, is a reconstruction of the original Elizabethan predecessor built over 400 years ago. But once you are in it you feel like you are back in time. The tour takes you around the theatre: the galleries, the stage and the famous Yard Standing where the so-called “groundlings” could watch a play standing and pay only a penny for it.  You then go to an exhibition which explores the life of Shakespeare, the theatre for which he wrote and the 17th-century London.

 

It is an open-air theatre (just like in good old days) where performances take place rain or shine and if you are lucky you might see one of the rehearsals taking place. At the Exhibition you will learn how a play like “Hamlet” was put together as a theatre performance back 400 years ago. This includes rehearsals, special effects, sound and costumes made at the time. You will also hear about the modern version of the theatre – after all it is the only building with thatched roof in London built over the past 300 years!
