The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is now open.

The new Playhouse has changed the cultural landscape of London.

The reconstruction of the indoor theatre has taken us another step closer to achieving Sam Wanamaker’s full vision, enabling the Globe to present theatre performances across 52 weeks of the year and providing an invaluable arena for Globe Education programmes and further research into Shakespeare’s theatres.

A generous donor has pledged to match pound for pound any gift made, therefore effectively doubling your donation. £7.45 million has already been raised against our £7.5 million target. We now turn to you, our devoted audience and ask you to contribute towards the last £50,000.
