Celebrating Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world is central to our work. Whether you are visiting London with students, bringing Shakespeare alive in your classroom, or want to study at the Globe with fellow teachers, we have the course for you.
Lively Action workshops
Our popular Lively Action workshops can be delivered at the Globe or in your school, wherever you are in the world.
Workshops are an hour in length, delivered by a Globe practitioner and tailored to your choice of Shakespeare play and key stage. Multiple workshops can be delivered by practitioners visiting your school, so you can make the most of the visit and offer a variety of classes or year groups the opportunity to meet Shakespeare’s texts over the course of a day.
Sessions focus on the relationship between Shakespeare’s language and performance to deepen students’ critical understanding. Contextual factors can also be spotlighted with an exploration of Shakespeare’s stage. Workshops are suitable for students aged 4-18.
Workshops at the Globe include an additional 30 minute tour of the theatre with your practitioner.
This year, Shakespeare’s Globe is excited to be conducting two-way live streaming from the Globe stage for the first time. Bringing our iconic theatre into the heart of classrooms, these unique learning experiences bring the text and students from the page and literally onto the stage. These sessions last 60 minutes and consist of:
A tour of the Globe Theatre
A workshop activity
Q&A with an Education Practitioner
These sessions can be tailored to match your needs: for any play, for any age range, and any learning levels.
We offer longer projects delivered in your school worldwide and tailored to your specific requirements.
You might want to work with select groups of pupils to develop confidence or key skills, or deliver a full-scale project for a whole class or year group, such as staging an in-school production.
Our made to measure projects are matched to precise school objectives and offer teachers and students the chance to work with Globe practitioners for a few weeks or through tailored visits to your school over the course of a year.
