Our Patrons play a vital role in the work we do

Support our behind the scenes work at Shakespeare’s Globe by becoming one of our Patrons. 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, as a Scribe’s, Illustrator’s, Printer’s or First Folio Circle Patron, 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 our vital education and community work.
