About the festival


The annual festival is Shakespeare Schools Foundation's flagship project and the world's largest youth drama festival.


They use the unique power of performance to develop self esteem, articulacy, literacy and teamwork; skills that transform lives.


In autumn 2017, a new generation will discover that by performing Shakespeare on a professional stage, they can gain the confidence to aspire and achieve in any walks of life.


Every year, the organisers work with thousands of pupils from every community, background and age group across the UK.


Months of preparation culminate in exhilarating performances in professional theatres nationwide; a night which can give confidence and self esteem to last a lifetime.


The 17th Shakespeare Schools Festival runs from 16th October to 8th December 2017.


With 292 performances from Penzance to Falkirk, Barnsley to Belfast, from inner-cities to seaside towns, it promises to be the most exciting festival yet!
