Join Katy, Head of Props and Pam, Head of Wigs & Make-Up for an interactive workshop to learn about the spooky secrets of our stages. Expect to get messy while creating stage blood, stage make-up, gooey eyeballs and more.

Katy and Pam will be at the Globe, so you may get a sneaky peek behind the scenes!

Participants will be sent a list of ‘around the home’ materials required in advance.

Please note that these workshops are designed for young people aged 7+, but tickets must be purchased by someone 18+. It is a condition of sale that an adult must be available within the household for the full running time of the workshop. Price is per household so may include siblings aged 7+ in the same house.



This workshop will take place online on Zoom. A ticket covers one household joining via one device. Please ensure you are in the Zoom waiting room five minutes prior to the event start time.

Once you have booked your place, you will be emailed the day before the event with a link to join the workshop.

Please make sure you have a good, reliable internet connection to join a Zoom meeting.

 To make sure that everyone is also safe, all children must be accompanied on screen by at least one adult at all times and no recording or photography will be permitted.

Live captions will be available for this workshop. Should you benefit from the use of captions and they do not appear automatically, please let us know.

Please ensure you and all other participants in your household follow both Shakespeare’s Globe’s Community Guidelines and Zoom’s Community Guidelines.
