Take our unique Much Ado About Nothing Tour of the Globe Theatre this summer and discover more about the history of Shakespeare’s much-loved play.

From within the confines of our wooden ‘O’, you’ll be introduced to the plot and characters of the play by our expert guides before delving into its history.

Discover the Renaissance roots of young lover Hero’s storyline and the other plays that would have inspired Shakespeare to write one of his best loved comedies.

Hear the theories behind the meaning of the title, both the wise and the wayward, and dig into the play’s themes, from gender roles to the iconic enemies-to-lovers trope.

You might even catch a glimpse of the company preparing for the next performance of our ‘absurdly funny’ ★★★★ (Evening Standard) Much Ado About Nothing.

You don’t need to have booked to see the show to take the tour, but it would complement attending a performance perfectly. The tour is timed so you can comfortably enjoy it before the performance.

Under 16 £15
