Welcome to Shakespeare's Globe Archive Catalogue

The living record of your memory (Sonnet 55)

We are open to everyone by appointment. See our opening times and book an appointment

Our collections are still in the process of being catalogued. As we progress, the range and number of records described online will grow. If you can't find what you are looking for or would like further information please email our Library & Archive

Researchers should note that this archive catalogue facilitates access not just to the records of the Shakespeare Globe Trust, but to the staging of works from the Early Modern corpus. These can describe (for example) race, gender, class, sexual orientation or disability, in ways which reflect the period in which they were created, and thus be inappropriate or offensive. We encourage researchers to alert staff with specific concerns, to help us care for future users as well as archives.
