The Fir Tree Tickets

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Wrap up warm and celebrate the season as the Globe Theatre is transformed into a forest made of cardboard. Suitable for all ages.

A festive fairy tale retold

Be delighted by a Christmas fairy tale at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre this December, as the outdoor venue transforms into a cardboard forest for The Fir Tree.

In the middle of the woods, surrounded by its animal friends, the Fir Tree has a peaceful life. But it is also curious. What is the rest of the world like? What adventures lie beyond the forest when it grows up?

Hans Christian Andersen’s festive tale is reimagined in a production that sees the wooden ‘o’ become a forest made of cardboard. Featuring puppetry, carol sing-a-longs, tree decorating and hot chocolate to keep you warm, this interactive story is the perfect way to get into the spirit of the season whatever your age.

Writer Hannah Khalil and director Michelle Terry bring this heartwarming show back to the Globe for a second year, giving audiences the opportunity to experience the magic of Christmas at an iconic London landmark.

Celebrate the season under star-lit winter skies with The Fir Tree tickets, which are a Christmas treat for the whole family.

the Fir Tree was festive, fun and theatrical but it is quite a hard sell for children sitting for 1 and half hours outside on a freezing day. The moral messages are conflicted and difficult to fathom and i fear it may have led to some rather unhappy Read more

Lovely lovely show. Bit of a sing song and a lovely story. That bloke from Motherland was in it and he was fantastic and so engaging when he told his story. It's for kids, but adults will like it too.
