Christmas at the Globe

It’s Christmas at the Globe!

To get into the festive spirit, we travel back in time with Dr Will Tosh to the frosty winter of 1607/8, when the river Thames froze solid.

As midwinter approaches, we’ve retreated into the warm glow of candlelight. We head backstage in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with Cleo, our Candle Technician, to find out how we get through hundreds of candles a day.

Finally, we’ve been digging around the archives to find you a festive poem from Jacobean England.
