Synopsis


Roll up, roll up! It’s the height of summer and all of London has come out to play.

Leave your morals at the door and lose yourself in our carnival of excess. Make sure to keep your wits about you, though – one wrong turn, and you might end up getting more than you bargained for…

London’s most notorious fair comes to life this summer, spilling out of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse into the wider Globe site, in Ben Jonson’s raucous comedy. Featuring a dizzying array of characters and a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, Bartholomew Fair is an extraordinarily exuberant panorama of London life.

Details of any assisted performances of Bartholomew Fair will be announced later in 2019.
