Shakespeare Schools Theatre Festival
Each year thousands of young people from primary, secondary and SEND schools across the country unite in the world’s largest youth drama festival. Months of preparation culminate in exhilarating performance evenings; young people playing Shakespeare in professional theatres, raising aspirations and unlocking the potential of students and teachers alike.
Due to the national lockdown, our wonderful partner theatres will remain closed to audiences until May 2021.
We hope to run the Shakespeare Schools Theatre Festival in select theatres across the UK from October 2021 through to March 2022.
Check back soon for more info on our upcoming Shakespeare Schools Theatre Festival, or join our waiting list if you know you would like to participate in this programme as soon as it is announced.
