What are they?


In partnership with Shakespeare’s Globe we’ll be hosting a series of in-person socially distanced Freelancer Spa Sessions at The Globe Theatre in London.

These FREE two hour sessions will be a chance to get back in touch with your body, your breath and refresh your mind with facilitation from the FMTW team.

When are they?


The next four Freelancer Spa Sessions are taking place in November.

Thursday 5 November 

10am – 12.15pm & 12.30pm – 2.45pm.

Tuesday 10 November

10am – 12.15pm & 12.30pm – 2.45pm.

Can I go?


Any Freelance Theatre Professional can attend.

There are limited places (20 per session) and so we are opening a ballot to attend. Please apply below and we will let you know if you have a place by 6pm on Friday 30 October.

We hope to run more sessions in the future – watch this space!

What about the rest of the UK?


We want to reach our freelance community across all areas of the UK, not just in London, so we’re in the process of organising Spa sessions in other areas and hope to announce dates and locations soon.

If you’d like to take the lead on a Spa day at your local theatre or venue, or you are, or know of a venue that would like to host a Freelancers Spa event we’d love to hear from you.


Shakespeare’s Globe

Check In

We’ll start off with saying hello and getting to know each other a little bit, whilst taking time to settle in to the space and find our physically distanced feet in the Yard.


Then we’ll move into a gentle movement session. Aimed at all levels and taught in a distanced way, this will be an opportunity to check in with your body and breath, and to re-connect with yourself in a physical space. 


With the voice session we continue to touch base with how you’re breathing and communicating. Generating resonant sound in the head and body is a wonderful way to connect with self, and can both empower and relax us at the same time.


The final part of the session will be a guided coaching session, finding small goals and developing practical strategies to work towards them in the future.


Do I need any experience?
No experience is necessary; the sessions are open to all. Performer, stage manager, lighting designer… anyone who wants to come and have a bit of ‘you time’ in a theatre!

Will there be a wet weather plan?

The Globe sessions will take place in the Yard with no rain cover. In the event of very wet weather we reserve the right to cancel if needed. The weather is getting colder, so please bring warm clothes.

Will access be provided?
There will be general access support at all events. All sessions will be delivered with access and audio description in mind. 
The Globe is a fully accessible building accessible toilets available.
Please let us know if you have any specific access requirements or  need to bring your own access support on the day.
