Join us for exhilarating performances, featuring a series of unique abridged Shakespeare productions by local schools. See Shakespeare’s timeless stories brought to life like you’ve never experienced before, and support young people from your local community as they take to the stage.
Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a charity that transforms lives through the unique power of Shakespeare. Our annual Festival provides a platform for up to 30,000 young people to express themselves and grow in confidence as they take to a professional stage.
In this, the 19th year of the Festival, we celebrate a season of ‘Infinite Variety’ as young people of all ages and backgrounds discover the possibilities presented by Shakespeare in their school rehearsal room, culminating in a thrilling night of theatre.
“EVERY CHILD IN EVERY SCHOOL OUGHT TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THIS MAGICAL PROCESS” PHILIP PULLMAN, AUTHOR AND PATRON OF SHAKESPEARE SCHOOLS FOUNDATION
