Shakespeare Schools Festival

Shakespeare Schools Festival

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world's largest youth drama festival at Stantonbury Theatre.

See Shakespeare's timeless stories brought to life like never before, and support young people from your community as they take to the stage.

“Every child in every school ought to have the chance to experience this magical process.” Philip Pullman, Author and SSF Patron

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a cultural education charity, transforming 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. This year we mark our 18th birthday with a Season of Democracy, in which young people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities have been finding their ‘voice’ in their school rehearsal room, culminating in a thrilling night of theatre.

Tickets £9.75 Concession £7.75
