Coram Shakespeare Schools Festival

Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world’s largest youth drama festival at Shakespeare North Playhouse!

Join us this February for an exhilarating evening of live theatre, featuring a series of unique abridged Shakespeare productions by local schools.

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 CSSF Patron

Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a national cultural education charity, dedicated to transforming young lives through the unique power of Shakespeare. We exist to instill curiosity, empathy and aspiration – and give children across the UK the confidence to succeed in life.

This year, our annual Theatre Festival will allow students from more than 350 schools a platform to further their literacy and teamworking, grow in self-esteem and express themselves on a professional stage.
