Globe Theatre + London Walk, second attempt: The Tempest

Friday 9th September 2022 @ 2:30 pm to 11:00 pm

The Show, and Tickets

Deja vu all over again.

Having organised the trip to the Globe on 8th July (which lots of people said they enjoyed) and then failed to get there myself because of Covid, I’m determined to make it this year. So I’m proposing the same arrangement as before, this time to see The Tempest.

Again, I’m heading for the cheapo £5 standing ticket. Seats in the galleries are also available at £25 upwards.

I’ve booked tickets for 9th September for 11 people, of whom 9 are standing with us peasants.

Some tickets are still available, so if you want to join us you’re very welcome but please make your own booking at https://basket.shakespearesglobe.com/23881/23895.

More details of this show are here.

The Itinerary

I’ll repeat the arrangements I failed to implement last time, which were:

I’ll be getting the train from East Croydon to Farringdon, taking a leisurely, easy and largely off-road 3.5 mile stroll through some interesting parts of the City to the South Bank, gaining sustenance at Wagamama in Clink Street, then on to The Globe.

Please feel free to join me at East Croydon, Farringdon, Wagamama or The Globe itself. Here’s my schedule:

14.51 Direct train from East Croydon (Platform 2) to Farringdon, arriving 15.16

Trains are frequent these days – fallback is the 15.01, arriving 15.26

15.30 Set off walking from Farringdon
17.30ish Wagamama Clink Street.

They don’t take bookings, but they do squeeze people in!

19:00 At The Globe, ready for 19.30 performance
Later Possible beers, followed by train back to Croydon ad lib – Blackfriars is nearby and has fast trains to East Croydon.
