This page was last updated Wednesday 9 May 2024.


Performances continue whatever the weather, please dress accordingly.

The management reserves the right to refuse admission and may conduct security searches, including bag checks, as a condition of entry.

The management reserves the right to make any alterations to the advertised arrangements, programme or cast without being obliged to offer refund or exchange. This can include the use of cover actors reading off script for the duration of the performance.

All ticket holders under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18, who will stay with the child for the duration of their visit. This applies for all Globe events. Anyone under the age of 16 who is unaccompanied by an adult will be refused entry.

For some of our workshops and courses, we also reserve the right to cancel the course if we are unable to recruit a minimum number of participants. In these cases, a refund or exchange to a future course will be offered.

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.

We reserve the right not to accept tickets for collection by third parties.

The Globe take no responsibility for any personal property.

A £2.50 transaction fee applies to all orders.


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.


Tickets for any of our live streams are also subject to the following conditions:

Your ticket entitles you and your household to access and watch the specified Live Stream on a single device via your online Shakespeare’s Globe account. The stream will be broadcast live at the specified time (which, unless otherwise stated, is shown in British Summer Time) and will not be available for viewing at a later date. Shakespeare’s Globe accepts no liability for any technical issues suffered by the customer or for the customer missing the Live Stream.

You may display the live stream on a single device and for your own personal and private use only. It is not licensed for any educational use, including and on behalf of all libraries and educational institutions worldwide. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display outside a personal and private setting, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer or sell this live stream. Commercial use of this live stream in any form is strictly prohibited.


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 group tickets are not available to be purchased via our website. To make a booking for a group of 6 or more, please follow the guidance on our website here, or contact our Group Bookings team on [email protected]
