Bring your study of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy of wit and wooing, Much Ado About Nothing, to life in this practical GCSE Study Boost day for ages 14–16. This is an in-person event hosted on-site at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Start your day with a peek inside the Globe Theatre and hear about the history of Shakespeare’s London and the theatrical world he created.

Then, in one of our rehearsal studios, jump into an interactive workshop led by a highly experienced Education Practitioner and explore the play’s language, characters and themes using a range of acting techniques and drama activities.
