As part of the building of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, our foyer has been closed since October 2012 and has undergone a redevelopment, in readiness for the Globe Theatre season opening 23 April 2013.

As works come to a close on the foyer, watch the video to hear about the redesign of the space and the challenges of building in an urban area with the theatre open to the public.

New foyer opens 18 April 2013.
