The Pop-Up Globe will pop up from next February to May at the Ellerslie Racecourse.

Four productions will be staged at the replica of William Shakespeare's spiritual home: Othello, Much Ado about Nothing, As You Like It, and Henry V.

The interior of the theatre is getting a major makeover, which will include a working cannon.

The theatre is the world's first full-scale replica of Shakespeare's second Globe playhouse.
