Students from the UK’s leading drama schools present scenes by Shakespeare and his contemporaries in the Globe Theatre. The public performance offers a heady mix of tragical, historical, pastoral and comical scenes culminating in one mighty festive finale jig.

The annual festival is a springboard for aspiring actors. Several participants have jigged their way straight into the Globe theatre company and have started their professional careers on the Globe stage.

The Sam Wanamaker Festival is presented in association with Drama UK and DMG Media.
