Please note: This event is for students participating in the 2017 Undergraduate Summer School Programmes only.
For the first time ever, the King’s Undergraduate Summer School offers discounted tickets for the tour and exhibition via our entertainment partner, and the chance to see a play at Shakespeare famous theatre – The Globe – on London’s Southbank. We are delighted to offer a ‘360 experience’ so that you can purchase tickets to learn about the theatre’s history, and then experience a show for yourself.
Part 1: Book a guided tour of the Globe Theatre and visit the Exhibition.
Based under the Globe Theatre, our engaging and informative Exhibition explores the life of Shakespeare, the London where he lived, and one of the theatres for which he wrote. A fascinating guided tour of the theatre reveals the story of its reconstruction and gives an exciting insight into the working life of the Globe.
To purchase your exhibition ticket for discount off the public price, please visit our booking site for a special student price.
Part 2: We have standing tickets to a live performance of Romeo & Juliet.
This play is one of the works that features in the Globe’s ‘Summer of Love’ season. Emma Rice – The Globes Artistic Director - celebrates 50 years since 1967 by staging the plays that celebrate the theme of LOVE with all its passion, comedy and tragedy.
‘Love is at the centre of our human experience. It provides us with the best of times and the worst of times and reminds us that we are alive, connected and part of something greater than ourselves. A little like theatre if all goes well.’ Emma Rice on the Summer of Love
PS. If you are staying on in London for Session 2, consider joining us for Much Ado about Nothing on 26 July.
