In honour of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, the Word of the Week is ‘Shakespeare’. To celebrate, tonight we open our new Globe season, and with our Globe to Globe production Hamlet no less, before it takes off on a two-year world tour to every country on earth.

Word of the Week: ‘Shakespeare’

Voiced by Samuel Hargreaves

Samuel played ‘Boy’ in our production of The Knight of the Burning Pestle in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse earlier this year.
