The Globe Visit

The Globe trip 2017 was a fantastic opportunity offered to a group of 44 students in years 10 and 11. The play was a modified version of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing set in Mexico 1949, it was a wonderful show full of music, comedy and vibrant colours.

Though the Globe is only a replica of the original, it gave history students the amazing chance to see one of the most famous Shakespearian plays in an authentic Elizabethan setting. Not only this but it tied in with the English faculty nicely as key stage 4 are currently studying Much Ado About Nothing and other Shakespearian plays for their GCSEs.

In my opinion, the most incredible part of the whole experience was seeing the professional actors and their own interpretations of the characters. As an English student studying the play I also found it extremely beneficial to see the show live as it was much clearer and has given me a better understanding of the play as whole.
