Handy Tips 

Priority Booking Online 

  • How to book/secret

To help you complete your booking as smoothly as possible 

      Before you start

  • You will need to be a current paid up Friend or Patron of Shakespeare’s Globe.

  • If you are new to online Priority Booking, you will need to register before booking tickets.

  • You must register online with the name/names exactly as they appear on your membership card.

  • Have your email address and password to hand (note: the email address has to be the one the Friends & Patrons office holds on file for you.)

  • If you have forgotten your password there is an email reminder button, which will send you to a link and allow you to create a new one.

    Please Remember

  • You can only book up to 4 tickets per performance date, online. 
  • For each  performance date chosen, all tickets must be in the same band. If you are looking to buy tickets from different price bands please complete separate transactions. 
  • Group Bookings cannot be made online –please use a Priority Booking form.

  • Tickets can only be sent to the ticket purchaser at his/her address.

  • You cannot book concession tickets online (under 18s, disabled patrons etc.) these must be booked on a Priority Booking form.

  • There is a £2.50 transaction charge on your overall purchases.

  • If an error message appears it can take 20 minutes to clear in the system, you may have to go away and come back.

  • There is high demand when we first go live with online booking so the system may be slow, please be patient.

  • The description of the seats/standing you have on offer appears on the left hand side of the page.

  • There is a button in the left hand bottom corner of the page which allows you to make the plan smaller or larger.

  • Make sure you are completely happy with the items in your basket before continuing, it will confirm the seat and the bay for you.

  • You can clear your selection by removing the items in your basket.

  • Gentleman’s Rooms are the only place in the theatre with proper chairs but they offer a side view of the stage.
