Bibliomania has partnered with Globe Education, the educational service of the Globe Theatre, to offer UK schools the chance to win a free, bespoke study day for a whole GCSE or A level class of students in November 2001. You, their teacher, can nominate the Shakespearian text, and Globe Education will organise a day at the Globe Theatre in London tailored to your class and that text. The Globe Education study days have received rave reviews from all schools attending them and are of enormous use in illustrating Shakespeare and bringing it alive.

GCSE Study Days

This study day sets Shakespeare's plays within their social, historical and theatrical context and comprises the following elements:

A 45-minute exploration of the Globe Playhouse (including the stage and the tiring house)
A fact-finding visit to the Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition
A 90-minute workshop focusing on the play selected for classroom study

A-Level Study Days

A level study days explore the Globe's unique relationship between actor, audience and architecture and examine how this relationship shapes the language and dramatic structure of Shakespeare's plays. Each day includes the following:

An introductory lecture to the playing conditions in the Globe
