SHAKESPEARE SCHOOLS FESTIVAL IS THE UK’S LARGEST YOUTH DRAMA FESTIVAL
We are a charity working with over 1,000 schools, enabling them to bring their interpretations of Shakespeare to 130 professional theatres across the UK.
Being part of SSF is a life-changing opportunity for young people to gain professional theatre experience and to perform in front of a paying audience alongside their peers from other schools. It may well be the first time in a professional theatre building for some of the students and indeed the audience members.
Each performance night aims to be a celebration of the young people who take part; to bring a community together and to raise the profile of the arts in your region.
