  • Visitor Information

On 23rd April 2014, the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, a new version of Hamlet staged by Shakespeare's Globe begins a two-year global tour, aiming to take in all 205 nations in the world. The 'Globe to Globe Hamlet', a stripped-down version of Shakespeare's classic tragedy is performed by a new cast of just eight actors in a brisk two hours and forty minutes. The tour, which comes to Middle Temple Hall from 18th to 20th April before officially beginning at Shakespeare's Globe on 23rd April 2014 will finish on 23rd April 2016 - the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. This will also be the date of Dominic Dromgoole's departure from the Globe, after a decade as its artistic director.


 

About Middle Temple Hall

Middle Temple Hall, completed in 1574, is late-Gothic in style. Its attractions are a rare double-hammer beam roof, an intricately carved screen (which, although heavily damaged by a World War Two bomb in 1940, was expertly restored), stained glass windows, heraldic coats of arms, a Minstrels' Gallery and some fine oak panelling.
