Space description

The Underglobe is situated beneath the iconic Globe theatre on London's picturesque Bankside. By day it plays host to the Globe's Shakespeare exhibition, but as the evening draws in it comes alive as one of London's most exciting hidden event spaces.

With an exclusive riverside entrance, private mezzanine level for arrival drinks and a sweeping staircase, the venue also features a built in stage, high-spec sound, lighting and projection systems and a full sized model oak tree.

We can host up to 450 guests for award ceremonies, gala dinners, weddings, parties and fundraisers.
