The Globe Theatre and Tate Modern
Thursday 30 April 2020

WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THIS TRIP DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK.

WE HOPE TO RE-INTRODUCE THIS TRIP AT A LATER TIME

Due to VE Day being celebrated on Friday 8th May next year and therefore a Bank Holiday,

we have had to change this tour to

Thursday 30th April

 

On arrival the tour will be split into two groups.
 

From its 16th Century beginnings to the reconstruction in the 1990’s, an expert, guided tour will bring the fascinating, iconic Globe Theatre to life.   We shall look at and discuss the significance of clothing in Elizabethan society.   Find out the origin of the phrases ‘straight-laced’, ‘loose women’ and ‘pin money’.
 

We will have the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of the exhibition showing a range of displays exploring the history of Shakespearean London and Performance including props, costumes, audio recordings and items from The Globe Archive.
 

The day will also include a guided tour at The Tate Modern on ‘Interpreting Modern Art’.
 

Please note that there will be a 5 minute walk between The Globe Theatre and The Tate Modern.
