At Shakespeare Schools Festival    How it works

We provide all the resources you need in order to help your school put on a Shakespeare performance in a professional theatre.
The process is simple. We'll guide you every step of the way, so whether you're experienced in drama or have never directed a play before, you'll have support and guidance from the first step to the final curtain.
A brief overview of the six stages of taking part in Shakespeare Schools Festival is below, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

It’s our Diamond Anniversary

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a charity that has been dedicated to helping young people give it their all since 1956. With every challenge they take on, and every DofE Award they work towards, young people from all walks of life have been given a chance to shine.  Choose a challenge, change a life

As part of the DofE’s Diamond Anniversary celebrations, we’re inviting everyone to take the DofE Diamond Challenge. The Challenge is inspired by the DofE Award, asking you to take on your own adventure, personal or skill challenge.  Your challenge can be as big or as small as you like, from kayaking the Zambesi to learning to knit. If it’s a challenge to you, it counts. And the best part is, it’s open to anyone of any age, anywhere!   So if you never had the chance to get involved while growing up, if your kids are doing it now, if you’re doing your own DofE or if you’re just looking for a reason to get out of your comfort zone, seize the day!

The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK.

We aim to show young people (primarily aged 7-19) the exciting and rewarding opportunities out there for them with the right experience and qualifications, by bringing classroom learning to life.
