Gimme, gimme, gimme (the Globe) after midnight
We said goodbye 2021 and hello 2022 with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Actor Giles Terera and the West End Musical Choir
Joy, gentle friends! Joy and fresh days of love accompany your hearts!
A very happy new year from one globe to another! Did you catch our very own wooden ‘O’ at midnight on BBC One this New Year’s Eve 2021?
London’s New Year Celebrations saw Actor Giles Terera deliver Midnight Moment from Millenium Bridge, a poem telling the story of the most poignant moments of the year written by Tomfoolery, before the West End Musical Choir lifted the (metaphorical) roof of our Globe Theatre with an epic ABBA melody.
From all of us here at Shakespeare’s Globe, we wish you a bright and hopeful New Year, and cannot wait to welcome you back to our Bankside home in 2022 for the remainder of our Winter 2021/22 season, our soon to be announced Summer 2022 season (with King Lear), and our 25th Birthday!
