Shakespeare's BirthdayShakespeare's Globe opens its doors for the biggest birthday party on Bankside in honour of the Bard. This year's Shakespeare's Birthday party is Hamlet-themed, with an Elsinore bouncy castle, sword fighting and a grave digging ball pool complete with skull. Actors who have played Hamlet through the ages will be on the Globe stage attempting to deliver the quickest reading of the play ever, and different film adaptations of Hamlet will be screened throughout the day, whilst mitts can get sticky in edible ghost-making workshops.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
