About the event

2019 marks 100 years since the birth of the Globe's founder, Sam Wanamaker, and 400 years since the death of celebrated Globe Theatre actor, Richard Burbage.

As part of this year's celebrations, this special event invites audience members to lift the lid on Globe theatre practice, experience what it's like to be a rehearsing actor at the Globe, and learn about the history of these two remarkable men.

Join us as we go behind the scenes of our unique spaces. The day includes exclusive practical sessions with Globe movement, voice and text practitioners, exploring what it's like for an actor performing on the Globe stage. Walk through the history of the building and the people who inspired it with leading academics.
