Shakespeare's Globe solves laundry problem

Miele Professional has installed an on premise laundry at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The historical site, a reconstructed Elizabethan theatre, is steeped in British tradition and is the principal venue in England for Shakespearian performances.

The unique building is relatively limited in terms of space but Miele Professional was able to install two PWT6089 stacked washing machine and dryers to create a convenient on premise laundry solution for the theatre. The machines will be used for all of the Globe's laundry needs, from costumes to linen for the restaurant.

Miele Professional's Little Giants and the washer-dryer PWT 6089 are machines that offer high-performance laundry on the smallest of footprints. The PWT 6089 is a stackable unit that stands less than two meters tall and has a one square metre footprint. The machines easily fit through a standard doorway, making them easy to install in the most challenging of spaces.

With all the ornate, valuable items that could need laundering at Shakespeare's Globe, including delicate costumes, it was important for them to invest in quality equipment. Miele Professional was able to offer the reliability and peace of mind that is inherent to the brand.

Les Marshall, sales and marketing director at Miele Professional, said: “At Miele Professional we are used to fitting on premise laundries at famous sites from Wimbledon to the Vatican. We were delighted and honoured to add Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to this roster.”
