Our annual Festival uses a rigorous and supportive process to train teachers and young people in an active and ambitious way of working with Shakespeare.
Months of preparation culminate in exhilarating performance evenings; young people playing Shakespeare in professional theatres - hundreds of nights across the country, every autumn.
The whole country is celebrating 400 years of the Bard's thrilling plays - so SIGN UP TO SSF TODAY and get your school performing Shakespeare in a professional theatre near you!
At SSF we’re looking forward; working to ensure these extraordinary plays are used to transform lives this year, next year and for hundreds of years to come - join our campaign to show that All the World’s Our Stage on social media #OurStage
