About the festival


For the first time in the Globe's twenty-year history, it is hosting a festival of events dedicated to the topic of Shakespeare and Race, which will include performances, workshops, public lectures, panels and an international conference.


Curated to draw attention to and provide a platform for scholars, practitioners and educators of colour in the teaching, study and performance of Shakespeare, this festival will highlight the importance of race to the consideration of Shakespeare not only in his time, but more urgently, in our own.
