Background
The first Globe Theatre stood for 14 years in London, until it was demolished by fire in 1613. The second Globe was rebuilt on it's foundations by Shakespeare and his Company, creating one of the most famous theatres in history.

Company History

Ground-breaking research by Associate Professor Tim Fitzpatrick and Russell Emerson of The University of Sydney, helped in the creation of the world's first full-scale temporary working replica of Shakespeare's theatre, the second Globe.

The audacious Pop Up Globe project was originally planned as a one-off in Auckland in 2016, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

It was such a HUGE success, it was decided to tour the Globe to other cities, so their audiences could experience Shakespeare, presented in his own theatre.

Pop Up Globe founder and artistic director, Dr Miles Gregory commented
"Our audiences are blown away by the immersive experience of seeing Shakespeare performed in the space for which it was written. The relationship between actor and audience, the spectacular space itself, together with the power of Shakespeare's incredible work,means attending plays at Pop Up Globe is totally different from anything you've seen before"
