Performances continue whatever the weather, please dress accordingly.

The management reserves the right to refuse admission and may have to conduct security searches.

The management reserves the right to make any alterations to the advertised arrangements, programme or cast without being obliged to offer refund or exchange.

The use of cameras, tape recorders or any other electronic or digital recording, photographing or imaging devices is not allowed inside the auditorium. Mobile phones, beepers and pagers must be switched off at all times.

Ticket holders consent to the recording and filming of themselves as members of the audience.

We conduct photography and filming in the theatres and around the site for purposes including archive recording, press and promotional photography, and the production of marketing materials. We keep these recordings and photos in perpetuity.

The re-sale of tickets by retail or online auction site by anyone other than Shakespeare’s Globe Box Office staff is strictly prohibited and may invalidate the ticket. Any ticket sold for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than Shakespeare’s Globe or any of its authorised agents will be invalid for entry.

The credit or debit card used to make the booking must be produced if collecting tickets from the venue. Tickets may not be released without this.

Tickets left for collection by anyone other than the cardholder, where the cardholder will not be attending, will require a letter of authorisation from them (printable pdf version). Please download if you have bought these tickets as a gift.

Online events will start on time and the Globe takes no liability for any technical issues suffered by the customer.

If a technical delay or issue arises from the Globe that causes the session to start late or suffer detrimental disruption, then we will ensure you receive your full allocation of time or look to reschedule if appropriate.

Whilst we endeavour to provide the best service possible for online delivery, there are some elements to your digital experience that we cannot fully control.

Video quality may not be fully consistent throughout the event, including some variations of image quality and the occasional pause or stutter in sound. This should be a rarity and we would not consider this a technical issue unless it severely affects the delivery of the session.

You are responsible for ensuring that all participants have access to equipment and a suitable internet connection that provides access to Zoom, resources and the live steam provided by the Globe.

We regret that bookings cannot be refunded once purchased.

Shakespeare’s Globe aims to ensure fair access for all. Participants are invited to tell us about any access requirements during the booking process; this will enable us to be aware of needs in order to make reasonable adjustments and/or adapt content where possible. As this project is at a pilot stage we will be learning from experiences and feedback to improve future online events. We cannot guarantee adjustments will be in place at this time.


Latecomers to performances may be asked to wait until a suitable point in the production before entering the theatre. To avoid disruption you may be asked to sit in alternative seats until the interval. A suitable point cannot be guaranteed and we cannot guarantee that anyone who arrives late will be admitted to the performance.


We regret that groups, discounted and concession tickets are not available online. Please call the Box Office on 020 7401 9919 for more details.


All tickets are sent out as a pdf attachment by default. There is the option to have tickets posted 1st class at the time of booking. Tickets are only posted to the address registered with the credit card company. For performances fewer than 5 days in advance, tickets are left for collection at the box office. For operational reasons, we may alter the time-scale of delivery but will advise you of this at the time of booking.

If collecting tickets from the venue, the cardholder and card used at time of booking must be presented in order for the ticket to be released.


Shakespeare’s Globe regrets that it cannot offer refunds once tickets have been purchased.


Tickets may be exchanged for future performances of the same production only, if returned to the Box Office at least 28 days prior to the performance date. There is an administration charge of £2 per ticket.


Shakespeare’s Globe regrets that it cannot offer refunds once tickets have been purchased.

If you wish to return tickets that you cannot use before the performance, Shakespeare’s Globe will endeavour to sell these provided we are completely sold out. We will only accept resales 48 hours before a performance if the performance is sold out. There is an administration charge of £2 per ticket for tickets re-sold. If your tickets are resold we will issue you a credit voucher minus the resale fee for use against a future Globe performance. We cannot guarantee the re-sale of tickets. Only original tickets can be offered for re-sale (not duplicate or agency tickets). We reserve the right not to accept tickets for re-sale.

Returns cannot be taken by telephone or email after 6.00pm Monday-Saturday or after 5.00pm Sunday.


Please contact the Box Office in advance on 020 7401 9919 if tickets have been lost or misplaced and duplicate tickets need to be issued. Please bring the card with which the original booking was made. We regret that for security reasons duplicate tickets can only be issued on the day of the performance and to the person who made the original booking.
