Globe Logo Black

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 – 12.45pm & 12.30pm – 2.45pm.

Tuesday 10 November

10am – 12.45pm & 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.

NEXT SPA SESSIONS - NOVEMBER 5th & 10th

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.

Movement

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. Bring your own mat!

Refresh

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.

FAQs

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?
For these first sessions, we will not be able to provide any access support as we get to grips with the distanced set up. We hope this will change for future events. However, the facilitators will make every effort to ensure that the sessions are audio described, delivered in plain English and use visual references where possible.

How does the ballot work?

Pretty simple. Fill in the submission form below. The ballot will be closed at 9am on Friday 30th October and winners will be selected at random and contact by 6pm that same day. We will try and fill any spaces up to 24 hours before the event.

What happens if I win a spot?

You will recieve an email from spa@freelancersmaketheatrework.com (please check your spam) with details about the session including where to go, what to bring and Covid-19 guidlines that MUST be followed when at Shakespeare’s Globe. Your name will be passed onto Shakespeare’s Globe so they can allow you entry. You will also be expected to fill in a Track and Trace form upon entry to the building.

Anything else I need to know?
Please, please only apply if you are available for the session. Spaces are limited and we want to make sure as many freelancers as possible can come along.
