Globe to Globe Hamlet

Help us reach our goal of performing Hamlet in every country in the world by sponsoring a mile

On 23 April 2014, the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, Shakespeare’s Globe embarked on a two-year epic and unprecedented global tour of Hamlet directed by the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole that aims to take in every country in the world.

The project has been granted UNESCO patronage in recognition of the tour’s engagement with local communities and promotion of cultural education. It also received the Renee Stepham Award for Best Presentation of Touring Theatre from the UK Theatre Awards and The Stage International award 2015.

This epic and unprecedented endeavour has already travelled over 100,000 miles and reached over 100,000 audience members across Asia, The Pacific, Australasia, Africa, the Americas and Europe. Highlights include traveling to Somaliland to become the first foreign theatre company to stage a full play in 23 years, and performing for free to over 3000 people in Sudan. But we need your help to keep going! Sponsor a mile from as little as £5 and enable us to perform in some of the most difficult and challenging countries on earth, to a audiences all across the globe.
