Join our Members and support the Globe’s cause

As a charity that receives no regular government subsidy, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to help us to continue to thrive in the future. During these challenging times, your support matters now more than ever.

Every Membership purchased – whether a Friend, Best Friend, Patron or Gift Membership – helps us to continue to share Shakespeare’s gift of stories.

From advanced priority booking benefits to having the chance to join our dress rehearsals, the four levels of Patron Membership allow you to play a very special role in what we do.

By offering a greater level of support to our company, you won’t just receiving exceptional benefits in return but will also play an integral part in funding projects and productions, allowing us to continue vital work.



A Membership is the perfect gift for a friend or a loved one, bringing the recipient one step closer to all that Shakespeare’s Globe has to offer, through exclusive benefits and discounts, as well as a chance to support our charitable cause.

How it works

  • When purchasing a Gift Membership a Gift Card will be sent directly to you.
  • You can then give this Git Card to your recipient.
  • The recipient will then use these links to activate their Membership: ACTIVATE UK or ACTIVATE INTERNATIONAL.
  • We will then post them their Welcome Pack which will contain their Membership Card.
