Tis Fun at the Globe Theatre in London

If you are longing for history to come alive, don't miss the Globe theatre in London this summer! When it comes to watching theatre, nowhere quite matches the history and intimacy of Shakespeare's Globe. To illustrate the first theme of renaissance, there are three classic Shakespeare plays - Othello, The Merchant of Venice and Love's Labour Lost. They explore the promise and the problems of the Renaissance period. Open all year round, Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition is the world’s largest exhibition devoted to Shakespeare and the London in which he lived and worked.

In addition, housed in the vast UnderGlobe beneath the theatre, is a fascinating exhibition that explores the remarkable story of American Sam Wanamaker struggle to rebuild the Globe and brings Shakespeare’s world to life using a range of interactive displays and live demonstrations.
Find out how special effects were produced in Shakespeare’s time; join the cast and add your voice to a scene played by Globe actors; watch a sword-fighting display; see a working printing press in action or discover how actors are dressed in Elizabethan clothing. It is a fun and fascinating tour.
