Summer 2021

After one of the most divided, isolating and lonely times in global history, Summer 2021 at Shakespeare’s Globe celebrates all that unites us: story, laughter, tears, nature and of course theatre.

This summer we’ll celebrate the lovers and the poets, revel in the power of our strong imaginations, and rediscover the wonder of theatre.

We cannot wait to open our great oak doors once again, and welcome you – our audience – safely back into our unique spaces for what promises to be a season of love, life and catharsis.
