Students visit the Globe Theatre in London

25 May, 2018

On Tuesday 15th May, Year 8 and Year 9 students went to The Globe Theatre in London to see a performance of The Merchant of Venice, by William Shakespeare. Students have been studying the text as part of their GCSE English Literature course and visiting The Globe, to see the play performed as it would have been in Shakespeare’s day, really brought it to life. Ellis Quinn, a student in Year 9 said: “The performance was very amusing and the actors had perfect comedic timings. It was cool seeing the play I had studied, live: it was a great experience for me.”
