Shakespeare’s Globe’s 2013 theatre season is afoot and I’m particularly excited by the busy artistic programme ahead. In our bold and vibrant ‘Season of Plenty’, which opened with The Tempest on 23 April, we open another 14 productions across the year.

Our Sam Wanamaker Playhouse – an archetypal Jacobean indoor performance space – is due for completion late autumn, with the first season commencing January 2014. This new theatre lit by candlelight, will allow Shakespeare’s Globe to present plays throughout the year and to stage Jacobean plays in their intended atmosphere. For information on our first season of plays and how to book tickets, do please visit our website.

Shakespeare’s Globe’s 2013 ‘Season of Plenty’ features The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, the three plays about Henry VI, Samuel Adamson’s Gabriel with international trumpet star Alison Balsom, Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale, The Lightning Child from Ché Walker and Arthur Darvill and two small-scale tours of King Lear and The Taming of the Shrew. Continuing the international theme from last year we welcome As You Like It from Georgia, King Lear from Belarus, and Footsbarn’s Indian Tempest. Over 700 Tickets are available for just £5 for every performance.

In addition to our internationally renowned theatre season, our exhibition and theatre tour is open all year round, as is our education programme which includes many public events. Swan at the Globe offers food and refreshments and the opportunity to dine with stunning views of the river Thames.

You will receive a warm welcome from everyone at the Globe and we hope you enjoy your visit to London.
