Shakespeare in Schools Festival 2014

Your chance to see your students perform on stage at The Alhambra Studio with Shakespeare Schools Festival - Thursday 13th March, 1.30pm at St. Stephen's Primary.

Shakespeare Schools Festival – the UK's largest Youth Drama Festival – are currently offering Primary, Secondary and Special Schools the chance to perform on stage at The Alhambra Studio space.

Festival Coordinator Liam from the SSF team will be up in Bradford to meet teachers and talk about joining SSF. He’ll be happy to discuss any aspect of the project and his contact details are also below if you’d like to get in touch before he arrives.

Schools that performed abridged half hour Shakespeare plays in the 2013 Festival have said:

"It was fantastic to see the children up there and having the chance to showcase skills their parents may have never seen before. Just magical.”

"The kids have been buzzing all day and the feedback from staff and parents has been phenomenal. I can’t recommend this program enough."

SSF is a charity supported by the Department for Education and schools are already registering for the 2014 Festival.
