Summer Schools

Courses for young actors and academics (aged 8-19 years)
taking place online and on-site in August 2021

Perfect for aspiring actors and academics, our Summer Schools in 2021 offer young people an unparalleled opportunity to develop their skills with Globe professionals.

After a year like no other this is a chance to get back into live performance and discovering Shakespeare with a group of peers here on-site, in the unique surroundings of Shakespeare’s Globe itself.

For those who can’t make it to London this summer, there are also courses designed to participate in online, at home via Zoom.

All courses, at the Globe and online, culminate in a sharing of the work from the week. Family members and carers are invited to join this.
