The UK’s largest Youth Drama Festival returns to the Lyceum this Autumn.

The Shakespeare Schools Festival works with over 1000 secondary, primary and special schools all over the UK, making it possible for them to stage abridged Shakespeare productions in their local professional theatre.

Each night four schools will perform four different Shakespeare plays. Come and celebrate the achievements of your local schools in a wonderful evening of entertainment.

This year’s performers:

The Winsford Academy, Winsford — Hamlet
Sir William Stanier Community School, Crewe — Macbeth
The Fallibroome Academy, Macclesfield — Romeo & Juliet
Rosebank School, Northwich — The Tempest

“Had I encountered something like Shakespeare Schools Festival, I believe my life would have bounced forward over some of the inhibitions and incomprehensions of adolescence. Childhood deserves such luck” Sir Tom Stoppard, SSF Patron

“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” Luke Broughton, St. Stephen’s CE Primary School
