Disabled parking is situated approximately two hundred metres from the auditorium and the wheelchair access is level all the way. Please inform the Globe Box Office of your requirements while booking your tickets, so that we can ensure the correct space is available for you. A disabled toilet is provided on site.


Open Air Auditorium


Please note that this is an open air event and the performance will take place in all but the most inclement weather conditions! Please bring suitable clothing in case of rain bearing in mind that umbrellas will not be allowed since they restrict the view of the audience behind you.


The main seating area is tiered so you will have a panoramic view of the stage area. Seats are not numbered so it will be first come first served. Our ushers will ask you to kindly ensure that you do not leave any unoccupied seats between groups as we are expecting full houses at all performances.


Please note that smoking is strictly not allowed in the auditorium area.


Premium Ticket Holders


Please show your tickets at the entrance gate and you will be escorted into the castle by one of our  ushers.
