Twenty years after it was launched here, Peace One Day will be returning to the Globe on Peace Day, Saturday 21 September 2019, for a day of celebrations which will culminate in a one-off concert on the Globe stage featuring internationally renowned musicians.


Throughout the day, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse will also host discussions tackling issues including Domestic Abuse, Sexual Violence and Cyber Violence followed by Words of Peace, a special performance where a handful of the world’s leading actors will read history’s finest speeches on peace.

Sir Mark Rylance will lead the celebrations on the day, and will be joined by Peace One Day’s founder, Jeremy Gilley, Peace One Day Ambassadors, actors Jude Law and Juliet Rylance, international music artists, and key peace advocates including: Ahmad Fawzi, the United Nations Strategic Communication Expert; Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, Commonwealth Secretary-General; Dr Scilla Elworthy, founder of the Oxford Research Group and Peace Direct; Pastor Dr James Wuye, and Imam Dr Muhammad Ashafa.


The evening celebration in the Globe Theatre will include performances by Emeli Sandé, Basement Jaxx and Will Young with more artists to be announced. There will also be a special performance choreographed by Emmy-nominated choreographer Jamie Neale with dancers from Jasmin Vardimon Company and Hofesh Shechter Company.
