Shakespeare Schools Festival 2018

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world’s largest youth drama festival at Theatre Royal Margate.

Join us on 20 and 21 November for an exhilarating evening, 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.

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a cultural education charity, transforming lives through the unique power of Shakespeare. This year we mark our 18th birthday with a Season of Democracy, in which young people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities have been finding their ‘voice’ in their school rehearsal room, culminating in a thrilling night of theatre.
