Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Learn new skills to build an anti-racist approach to teaching Shakespeare in the classroom.

A practical and interactive workshop, designed for Secondary English and Drama teachers, that draws on Othello and The Merchant of Venice.

The plays will be examined through the lens of anti-racism and the outsider and look at how we can identify parallel occurrences in contemporary society. The workshop will be delivered by an experienced Globe Education Practitioner.



A ticket covers an individual or group joining via one device. These online events are designed for teachers and will be attended by up to 40 other groups or individuals on the same video meeting. Please ensure you join the meeting five minutes in advance of the event start time.

A link with joining instructions will be emailed to you a day before the event. You will need access to a reliable internet connection and be able to join a Zoom meeting.

Participants are invited to tell us about any access requirements during the booking process; this will enable us to be aware of needs in order to make reasonable adjustments and/or adapt content where possible.

These online events are interactive, which means that there are opportunities for the Globe practitioner and the participants to engage directly with each other live.

To make sure that everyone participating is safe and to protect privacy no recording or photography will be permitted.

Our staff retain the right to terminate any participant’s connection to the Zoom meeting if our Ticketing terms and Community guidelines are not followed

“Absolutely fabulous […] has made me reconsider my choice of texts for the IB Literature course I run because I want to tackle colonialism and its legacy much more head on. A wonderful workshop.”
