MIDNIGHT MATINÉES

The clocks strike midnight and the restaurants and cafes on Bankside are shutting down for the night. But something special is about to happen in our ‘Wooden O’…

Our special Midnight Matinée performances start at 11.59pm, so as the city settles down and fades away to sleep, prepare to be transported into worlds of disguises, forests, shipwrecks and fairies. Revel in the enchanting atmosphere of the Globe under the stars and experience Shakespeare’s plays in a truly unique and magical way.

On 20 July, join us under the moonshine in fairy land for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and on 6 September midnight revelry in the forest of Arden beckons in As You Like It.

It’s a great London experience that everyone should do at least once
