More about The Fir Tree

Experience the magic of Christmas in the Globe Theatre with all the family, as our re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s festive fairy tale returns for a second year.

In a beautiful wood stands a little Fir Tree. Kept company by woodland creatures, it enjoys a peaceful life. But the Fir Tree is curious. It dreams of a world outside the forest, yearning for adventure. What will happen when it grows up? Where will it go? And will it be everything the Fir Tree wished for?

Let imaginations run wild as the Globe transforms into a hand-crafted forest. Meet friendly puppets made of cardboard – and make your own to bring to the performance! Take part in carol-singing and tree decorating, and keep cosy with a hot chocolate or mulled wine under the wintry star-lit sky.

Globe resident writer Hannah Khalil‘s new re-telling of this classic fairy tale, directed by Michelle Terry, is suitable for all ages, big or small. So, join us this Christmas for a wonderfully festive dose of storytelling, puppetry, song and hope.

The Globe is a reconstruction of an open-air theatre designed in 1599 and cannot satisfy all 21st-century expectations of comfort and convenience. Please take a moment to read this information before booking. The Management reserves the right to refuse admission in accordance with our health and safety policy. If you have special needs, please advise us when booking. Shakespeare's Globe operates a no smoking policy in all our public areas.

All seats are priced according to visibility. The roof of the stage and all gallery seats are held up by pillars; there is no seat in the theatre from which the action is not obscured at some point by pillars.
