NEWS: Shakespeare’s Globe is to Reopen From April

The theatre has confirmed details of its reopening plans for April – with details of a Summer season to be announced.

It has been announced that from the 13th April, socially distanced tours of the theatre will resume at the theatre, meanwhile Swan at the Globe, the Globe’s on-site bar and restaurant will be open for outdoor dining from the 12th April.

Visitors taking part in the guided tours can expect to discover more about the history of London and the story of the Globe itself. Tours will be taking place every day during the Easter holiday (with seven tours a day), following that at only weekends until the theatre is fully reopen for other activities. Tickets must be pre-booked online for time slots to allow for social distancing.

The Swan at the Globe will be be offering mid-morning coffees and snacks, and a new springtime menu, with daily specials and a carefully curated drinks list.

In addition to this, the venue has confirmed that it will be continuing to provide digital content as well as providing resources for schools, with a new series of online workshops being introduced to cover those at G.C.S.E and A Level stages.

Talking about the news, Chief Executive Neil Constable said: “Closing the Globe last year was a truly awful experience – none of us wanted the pandemic to be a reality, but in the face of public safety we of course did what was needed. Over the past year, we have expanded our digital offering and have loved seeing our work reach international audiences like never before. We have played our part supporting families and students at home with a huge array of events, workshops for all ages and stages. But, more than anything, we are excited to have audiences back in our wooden ‘O’, and we are well-prepared to safely welcome the public in once again. Our creative freelancers are integral to our reopening and future success, and we are committed to employing them at the earliest opportunity. We are ready to recover, delighted to open those wooden doors into our marvellous outdoor theatre and get back to providing world-class culture to the public.”

The theatre is also preparing for a full reopening and will be announcing a Summer season later this month.
