This Autumn, we are bringing the largest youth drama festival in the UK Shakespeare Schools Festival to our stage! Abridged Shakespeare plays will be performed by local schools, showcasing an interpretation of the Bard as never seen before. 

The performance comes as a part of Shakespeare Schools Festival, seeing 30,000 young people take to the stage nationwide and celebrating the 400th anniversary of the great playwright’s death.

“My heart was beating really fast until I had said all my lines and my bit was over. Then I felt like I wanted to do it all again... It has changed my life.” Jacub, pupil on his performance at the 2015 Festival

Shakespeare Schools Festival gives primary, secondary and special school pupils from all backgrounds the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre, ultimately transforming lives.
