The stage of the Globe Theatre is lit by red lights.

On 16 March 2021, one year since the arts industry was forced to halt performances, theatres across the UK lit their buildings red to to symbolise looking with hope to the future ahead.

In 2019 our education team worked with over 140,000 people of all ages on site.

To fund the work we do, we are entirely reliant on the tickets you buy and the generosity of supporters. There remains much to be done at the Globe, both to complete existing projects and to create new programmes which will enable a greater number of people to enjoy the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries.

Shakespeare’s Globe is often where many people start a lifelong relationship with Shakespeare. We’ve been looking back at the last year and how you connected with us…

In 2019:

  • In the Globe Theatre, 40% of tickets were sold for only £5 and 50% for £25 or less
  • Our 13th Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank production played to over 27,000 schoolchildren, over 18,000 of whom came for free
  • We delivered 3,000 workshops to schoolchildren and welcomed over 80,000 students
  • Our practitioners led workshops and conferences across the world, from Singapore to the USA
  • We celebrated 30 years of education and worked with over 140,000 people of all ages on site
  • We welcomed 287,045 people on tours
  • Work toured the UK, the US, Norway, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Austria
  • The launch of our new archive saw 130,000 items from our production and institutional collections digitised

All this was achieved without Arts Council or any other form of state funding – it happened because of your support.
