Tube Strike? Pah! Stay Out And Enjoy A Free Night At Shakespeare's Globe

Hands up who is not looking forward to getting home during the upcoming tube strike?


What if you could swap the pre-strike crush on the evening of 5 August for a night of culture, calm and critically-acclaimed performances? You’re in luck. To help beat the tube strike blues, Shakespeare’s Globe is giving away 150 TICKETS to their brand new production, The Heresy of Love.

You need not spend your evening battling through barriers or squashed into the armpit of a similarly unhappy commuter. Stay in town and get up close and personal to the action at Shakespeare’s Globe instead; the circular performance space is intimate, unique and based on London’s first ever purpose-built theatre. Your standing ticket will put you front and centre, ready to watch the unfolding action on stage as it was meant to be experienced by an Elizabethan audience.

The Heresy of Love is a new production of Helen Edmundson’s critically-acclaimed play concerned with the clash between organised religion and personal faith. In fact, many of the elements sound rather like a tube strike — danger, passion, tragedy - only this time you won’t be at the receiving end.

Don’t ruin your evening by joining the stampede. Take some time out to enjoy a free night out at the theatre instead. Just enter your details below and you’ll be in with a chance of winning a free pair of tickets. Good luck!
