Unlock the secrets of Pop-up Globe with one of our 40 minute guided tours.
Explore Pop-up Globe, including the background of the Second Globe Theatre on which Pop-up Globe is based. From the initial plans to final construction and the symbiotic relationship between the theatre and Shakespeare's work, our informative and friendly guides will share with you their extensive knowledge on this remarkable performance space.
Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale temporary working replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, and is the result of ground-breaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360-degree experience unlike any other.
