Test tubes and a Bunsen burner - I’m transported back to Chemistry class

And me ...I set fire to the rubber tube bit 

I only took sciences for 2 years........but we did manage to blow up one of those glass beakers with the Bunsen burner.....no health and safety nonsense for us

Health & Safety hadn’t been thought of when we were at school

 Chemistry was the only science I was good at but it clashed with something else on my timetable so I binned it

Little jars of assorted chemicals on the bench+ fire + bored teenagers equalled boom....a not very loud one, but glass flying everywhere...and we didn't have goggles

Been to the Globe a couple of times....they give you blankets to keep warm, it's freezing by the river at night

You can take a picnic with you too

 Sounds good

It's a great experience...take booze as well....the boxes on the middle tier are the best and the good thing is that they aren't expensive

I had enough bother persuading MrY to go to The Old Vic, so I doubt I could persuade him to go to The Globe - even if I told him he could take booze
