This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Shakespeare's Globe opens its doors to celebrate William Shakespeare's 450th birthday with a free, fun-packed party.

There will be plenty of party games and entertainment for all the family, including a bouncy castle, close-up magic, balloon twisting, Pass the Parcel, musical Roman statues on the Globe stage, stilt walkers and Pin the Ruff on the Bard.

Jelly and ice cream will be served and everyone will get the chance to try their hand at cake decorating.

Eccentric improvisational theatre company The School of Night will return to perform Shakespeare-related rhapsodies, poetry and drama on the Globe stage, using ideas suggested by the audience.

The box office will also be celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday by offering yard tickets to all Globe Theatre performances in April 2014 for 450 pence (normally £5, subject to availability). This celebratory offer is available now for bookings in person or over the phone by quoting 'birthday offer'.
