We are happy to welcome families back to our wooden ‘O’ with our new range of family story tours and workshops starting on 17 October and taking place on-site at our home here in London. This A Midsummer Night’s Dream Family Workshop is perfect for ages 5 – 12 and their families.

Explore Shakespeare’s magical comedy together as a family in this fun and practical workshop in the most amazing space – on the Globe stage!

Using a range of activities and games designed to draw out elements of the play’s language, characters and themes, you will be transported into the world of Fairies, Lovers and Mechanicals.

Workshops will be led by one of the Globe’s highly experienced practitioners who include actors, teachers and directors. Family groups will be in socially-distanced ‘bubbles’ for the workshop.

You can enjoy this as an experience on its own or alongside one of our Story Tours.
