Knock down walls that prevent students connecting with Shakespeare in our workshops, study days and projects. From practical workshops to GCSE and A Level Study Days in multiple subjects, students acquire key skills through inspiration and active engagement.
Workshops & tours
Lively action workshops
Our popular Lively Action workshops can be delivered at the Globe or in your school.
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 a variety of classes or year groups can experience workshops 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. Workshop delivery is linked to NC requirements.
Workshops at the Globe include an additional 30 minute tour of the theatre with your practitioner.
We also offer storytelling for KS3 (ages 11 – 14) in your school. For more information click here.

Production & projects
Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank
Every year, Shakespeare’s Globe and Deutsche Bank produce a full-scale 90 minute production of a Shakespeare play in the Globe Theatre designed especially for young people.
The production is accompanied by CPD sessions for teachers, workshops for students and an online website with interactive teaching resources.
Thanks to Deutsche Bank, the whole project is entirely free to state schools in London and Birmingham, and available at a highly reduced rate for all other schools.
Next year’s production will be announced soon. Register your interest in this incredibly popular project and be the first in line for booking by visiting our sign up page below.
We offer a programme of workshops or longer projects delivered in your school worldwide and tailored to your specific requirements, or here at the Globe.
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, either through tailored visits to your school or here at the Globe.
Transitioning between primary and secondary school can be a challenging time for young people.
This transition project connects your school with one or more feeder schools to strengthen the academic or pastoral bridge between key stages using Shakespeare’s stories and language.
The project builds confidence and communication skills in Year 6 pupils and Year 7 students as they work together as a team to prepare for a Shakespeare performance.
