Christmas at the (snow) Globe

Season 3, Episode 11,  Dec 16, 2019, 05:56 PM

It’s Christmas at the (Snow) Globe!

It’s that time of year again: the frost is settling on the thatched roof, the decorations have gone up… and all the joy of a Danish family Christmas is about to arrive at the Globe. We caught up with Sandi and Jenifer Toksvig to find out more about their very special show, Christmas at the (Snow) Globe, where audiences will have to help our merry gang find the stolen magic of Christmas, and return it to the Globe… 

We also 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.
