The most popular option for schools visiting Shakespeare’s Globe are the Lively Action Workshops and Tours packages. 

Those taking part will develop key skills and a practical tool-kit that they can carry forward into their study and exams. 

The day will start with a 30-minute tour of the Globe Theatre with students hearing about the history of Shakespeare’s London and the theatrical world he created. They will then take part in an interactive workshop, exploring the language, characters and themes from Much Ado About Nothing using a range of acting techniques and drama activities. 

The GCSE Study Boost Day, taking place on 10th August, will be rounded off by watching a performance of the comedy Much Ado About Nothing in the Globe itself.
