Friday 21 – Sunday 23 April 2017

Join us for an extraordinary weekend of events and performances as we celebrate Shakespeare’s 453rd Birthday.

Shakespeare’s Birthday weekend sees the closing of our winter season, Wonder Noir, in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, and the opening of our summer season, the Summer of Love, in the Globe Theatre. Mark Rylance’s Sonnet Walks return for their 25th anniversary, as well as a unique performance of Shakespeare’s poetry in Westminster Abbey. Families can enjoy a wonderful storytelling session in the Playhouse and discover more about Shakespeare in our Exhibition & Tour.
