Part of Pop-up Globe’s mission is to share the extraordinary experience of Shakespeare’s masterworks performed in the original space of the second Globe with as many school students as possible.

Over 35,000 school students have attended Pop-up Globe so far. We’re delighted to share the magic with Victoria’s students and welcome you into our theatre.

Ticket allocation and collection

Tickets will be collected from the box office on the day and be scanned through as per usual. Groups of more than 10 will receive one ticket for the entire group.

Venue Information

Pop-up Globe is an all-weather venue so students must come prepared with appropriate weather gear (raincoat or sunhat) and plenty of water. Umbrellas are not permitted due to sight lines and safety reasons.

See two shows in one day

Make the most of the Pop-up Globe experience and see two shows in one day!  Start the morning with Around The Globe In 60 Minutes! – and step into history and experience the triumphs and disasters that tell the story of the second Globe Theatre: from the fascinating story of its construction by Shakespeare and company after the catastrophic mid-performance fire of 1613 to its decline and fall as the bloody English Civil War started in 1642. Along the way, expect to meet outrageous characters from its history, and to laugh, shout and cheer as a cast of five actors share the extraordinary tale of one of the greatest theatres in history: the second Globe.

Take a break for lunch in the surrounding Kings Domain Gardens and then enjoy a matinee performance of one of Pop-up Globe’s critically-acclaimed productions; As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, or Henry V.
