What a night – only £5

I’ve been pushed aside and shouted at. Seen a shooting, a bare-knuckle boxing match and a man hanged. Had a howitzer pointed at me, attended several demonstrations, heard rousing speeches and, for the first time, watched a punch and judy show.

Holding Fire at Shakespeare’s Globe. A very simple play about the Chartists but – especially for groundlings who are surrounded by the action – a hugely invigorating bit of theatre.
