'Why, this is very midsummer madness.'

With the end of year fast approaching we’re looking forward to the chance to get some CPDs in before the break, the summer holidays and and the new academic year (already)! 

Here’s a few things we wanted to let you know about before the end of term chaos kicks in.

In this edition:

⭕ CPD on teaching A Midsummer Night's Dream
⭕ Free tickets!
⭕ Activities for students and families during the summer holidays

Teaching A Midsummer Night's Dream CPD.

Packed with inspiring ways to teach the play with transferable teaching methods that can be applied to any other text, this CPD will deliver for all English teachers. Led by one of our experienced Globe Education Practitioners these workshops will take place on Zoom.

Places are free for teachers at schools participating in our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank project (see the next article for information*) or cost just £10 per participant.

Free tickets to A Midsummer Night's Dream.

There’s still time for state schools in London and Birmingham to apply for free tickets to A Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank project.

Between 28 September and 13 October we’re offering your students the opportunity to see our ‘utterly joyous’ (Time Out) production of the play live in the Globe Theatre. The project also includes free student workshops, free online resources exploring the play and CPD sessions for teachers.

School's out! 

We’re looking forward to welcoming young people and their families back to the Globe over the summer. Your students can explore Shakespeare with our experts in our Summer Schools for 8 to 19 year olds. Families can experience the fun of Telling Tales, our storytelling festival.

Perfect for aspiring actors and academics, our Summer Schools offer young people an unparalleled opportunity to develop their skills with Globe professionals. There are acting courses in four age groups, a literature-based course for young academics, and online options for younger ages. Summer Schools will be open for booking from Tuesday.

Younger children and their families can discover the joy of some of Shakespeare’s best known stories in the stunning setting of our Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. From The Tempest to The Merchant of Venice we can promise magic, adventure, laughs and a few gasps along the way.
