Ha, ha! What a fool honesty is!
— The Winter’s Tale, Act IV, scene 4
Gather round for an interactive, time-travelling, country-hopping online storytelling!
It all starts with an argument. A really big argument where King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his wife, Hermione, of being a little too friendly with his best friend, Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. We’ve all been there. It results in more misunderstandings, abandoned babies and bears than you can shake a stick at… Can magic save the day?
Storytellings will be led one of the Globe’s highly experienced practitioners who include actors, teachers and directors. You can enjoy this as an experience on its own or alongside one of our related workshops.
Recommended for ages 5–12 and their families. All those attending a session must be accompanied by an adult on screen at all times.
ONLINE EVENTS: HOW DO THEY WORK?
A ticket covers one household joining via one device. These online events will be attended by up to 20 households on the same video meeting. Please ensure you are in the Zoom waiting room five minutes prior to the event start time.
A link with joining instructions will be emailed to you a day before the event. You will need access to a reliable internet connection and be able to join a Zoom meeting.
Participants are invited to tell us about any access requirements during the booking process; this will enable us to be aware of needs in order to make reasonable adjustments and/or adapt content where possible.
These online events are interactive and fun for all, which means that there are opportunities for the Globe practitioner and the participants to engage directly with each other live.
To make sure that everyone is also safe, all children must be accompanied on screen by at least one adult at all times and no recording or photography will be permitted.

The play doesn’t take place in the winter at all – the title refers to the sort of story one might tell for entertainment on a cold, dark winter’s day.
