A dark cloudy night sky above the Globe Theatre stage: with fairy light hanging across the open-air roof.

Celebrate the end of summer with our competition with the Financial Times

Be in with the chance to win a FTWeekend Festival pass and theatre tickets to our Summer 2021 season at Shakespeare’s Globe

Summer may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops there. We have a bumper prize on offer to mark the end of the long, glorious summer nights. You can be in with a chance of winning a FTWeekend Festival pass and theatre tickets to our Summer 2021 season at Shakespeare’s Globe.

The FTWeekend Festival returns this Saturday 4 September at Kenwood House Gardens, with an eclectic line-up of speakers featuring over 100 leading authors, scientists, politicians, chefs, artists and journalists, including Ian McEwan, Sarah Gilbert and Trevor Phillips. Seven live stages will explore intelligent, civilised debate and good humour, with the Festival held in the spirit of reawakening and the possibility of reimagining the world after the pandemic. The experience will also include wine tastings, food demos, live poetry and music.

Our Summer 2021 season is now in full swing, as we celebrate all that unites us through Shakespeare’s enchanting stories of love, laughter, and tears. From a raucous A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a visceral take on Romeo & Juliet, and a rollicking medley in Twelfth Night, there’s much joy to be had in the Globe Theatre as we experience live theatre once more.
