"Pop-up Globe is more than just a remarkable feat of engineering and design. It’s the world’s first full-scale, temporary, working replica of the second Globe, based on over a decade of research by academics Tim Fitzpatrick and Russell Emerson of Sydney University. 

Pop-up Globe replicates the dimensions of this long-lost theatre exactly, for the first time since the second Globe was demolished in 1644. This is more than a theatre: it’s a living time-machine that opens up the mysteries of a long-lost world – and it’s the space for which our company makes extraordinary new productions of Shakespeare’s masterworks." (Dr Miles Gregory, Pop-up Globe website). 

Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while you listen to this talk. It is helpful to us if you RSVP that you are coming as it helps us with seating!
