The world's largest youth drama festival

20 November 2020

20 November is UN World Children’s Day. The UN asks us all to celebrate and demand action for child rights. At CSSF, we believe children have a right to the arts and to a high quality arts education and our 2020 Festival schools and teachers are showing they do too. The arts prepare children for their future and help build a better society.

On 20 November 2020, hundreds of casts from every corner of the UK will take part, together, in one unique night of theatre in their schools.  On World Children's Day, our Festival schools will have three opportunities to engage directly with One Night of Shakespeare and celebrate together through a broadcast on our website.  We’ve designed each with help from our Patrons and theatre facilitators so we can facilitate bringing the experience of live theatre from the stage to school. 

Registered schools will have access to a link in November where they can watch these broadcasts in the classroom, hall, gym or wherever the performance is taking place.
