Further info

The Shakespeare Schools Festival works in partnership with the National Theatre to help 700 schools from across the UK to stage abridged Shakespeare productions in their local professional theatre.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate an evening's professional entertainment with four youthful half-hour productions of different Shakespeare plays, performed by schools in the local community.

"I am sure this will be something the children involved will remember with pride and fondness for the rest of their lives." - participating teacher, 2011

"For the first time in their lives every one of these pupils has faced a challenge without running away. The change in them individually, and collectively, has been astounding." - participating teacher, 2011

"I can honestly say that their performance was the proudest moment of my career - they absolutely and completely pulled it off. It was everything I hoped it would be, and more!" - participating teacher, 2011

"What a fantastic organisation...it was truly inspiring to see local children engaging with Shakespeare and clearly benefiting from the experience" - parent of participating student, 2011
