Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world’s largest youth drama festival at the Carriageworks Theatre. Join us from the 3rd & 6th - 10th November for a series of unique Shakespeare productions staged by your schools.


Whether you are a parent, friend or another local school, we invite you to an exhilarating evening of theatre where you will see Shakespeare’s stories brought to life like never before.


“Every child in every school ought to have the chance to experience this magical process. To bring the enchantment of Shakespeare to thousands of children – there’s no more magical process in the whole of education. Long live the Shakespeare Schools Festival!”

Philip Pullman, Author and SSF Patron

In the celebratory finale of their Festival journey, 30,000 young people from primary, secondary and special schools nationwide will unite on their local professional stage in thrilling performance evenings.
