'Why, this is very midsummer madness.'

The summer holidays are nearly upon us and we wish you all a restful and replenishing holiday period after what has been an incredibly challenging time for educators across the world. 

As many of you move back into a socially distanced classroom environment this autumn term, we've been working hard to ensure that all our workshop and CPD sessions are available online. You'll find details of the range of ways we can work together in this newsletter. 

Finally, this month marks the last chance for you and your students to catch our free Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank's Macbeth online, but we'll be bringing you news of an exciting premiere for schools in autumn term. 

We're doing all we can to bring Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank back to the Globe in 2021. Watch this space for more news in September.

Work with Shakespeare's Globe this autumn term.

From September 2020, we will be delivering our workshops, storytelling, CPD and projects for schools online. This exciting new method of delivery will enable schools teaching in socially distanced classrooms, or using distance learning, to connect with the Globe wherever they are in the world. 

We will also be offering socially distanced sessions in schools, and you can still book for workshops at the Globe when we re-open. Visit our learn pages for more details and please email us for all enquiries and bookings

Opportunities for individual students.

For students aged 8 - 19 keen to engage with the Globe over the summer period, we are also offering a new range of workshops and courses designed to prepare students for A Level or University study, or simply to engage with their favourite Shakespeare texts. Sessions range from one hour to two weeks in length and are all delivered online and booked by individual students and their families.
