Monday 04 March 2019

Over the past 8 years, Shakespeare’s Globe has commissioned Premm to produce the look and feel for the Deutsche Bank sponsored initiative Playing Shakespeare. The Shakespeare productions are created specifically for young people, with 180,000 free tickets given to London school pupils focusing on a different play every time, this year being ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
