Shakespeare's Globe

How can I join in?

This summer the National Literacy Trust have placed 50 benches all over London. The benches are part of Books About Town, and have been made by artists to celebrate reading for fun. We even have one outside the Globe!

The benches all look very different. What do you think a Shakespeare themed bench would look like? Draw a picture of a bench that reminds you of Shakespeare or the Globe and send it to us. We will put it up on the Share page for everyone to see. Plus all entries could win a prize!

You can use the bench template to get you started. When you are done, send us a scan or a photo to playground@shakspearesglobe.com. Remember to tell us your nameage and phone number.

Send your design to us by Sunday 31 August and you will be entered into a prize draw to win amazing Shakespeare themed prizes!

What would I win?

If you are randomly selected as a winner you'll be able to bring your family on a tour of the Globe theatre and our exhibition. You will also get a range of Playground goodies and lots of Shakespeare books for your school.
