Shakespeare's Globe


"The pupils and I were very impressed by the knowledge and energy of the workshop leader. They learnt a great deal about Macbeth and performance and benefited from his experience and professionalism. His manner was relaxed and pupils felt very comfortable in expressing themselves during the workshop. I was also impressed by the service offered by The Globe Education Department; coming from far away was certainly made easier by your efficiency and helpfulness. I will definitely use the services offered by you again."
