Handy Tips 

Priority Booking Online 

  • How to book/secret

Here are some handy tips 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 require more than 9 tickets for a performance date, would like to use the under 18 discount or theatre tokens, please use a Priority Booking form.

We charge £1.50 for UK postage on tickets booked via the Priority Booking form and a £2.50 transaction fee when booking via the website.

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

We cannot offer telephone bookings during the Priority Booking period.

Registering for Online Priority Booking 

If you are new to online Priority Booking you will need to register before booking tickets. You can register online at any time.

To register, from the Globe homepage (, click ‘Book Tickets’ on the right hand side and then choose ‘Log In’ from the left hand menu.

At the bottom of this page, click on ‘Register’ and fill in your details.

You must register with the email address we hold for you in the Friends & Patrons office.

When registering, please use the surname displayed on your membership card (although remove ‘& Family’ if it appears).

Using Priority Booking Online 

Priority Booking opens at 10am on Tuesday 13 January 2015.

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

If an error message appears it can take 20 minutes to clear the system; you many have to go away and come back.

To use Priority Booking online, follow the directions above to register, but instead of clicking ‘Register’ on the Log In page, remove any customer number and enter you email address and password in the relevant fields.

Click the red ‘Log In’ button; this will take you to a page headed ‘Customer Details’.

Click ‘Tickets’ on the left hand menu and then choose ‘Globe Theatre’.

You should now be able to see a drop down menu detailing all of the season’s shows.

From here you can choose the show, date, time and pick your seats.

To buy tickets to more than one performance, choose the ‘Add More’ button when you arrive at the ‘Your Basket’ page.

Please double check you are happy with your basket before completing the payment transaction.

Full terms and conditions can be found on our website.
