Shakespeare Schools Festival is transformative.

Young people develop vital life skills; self-confidence, collaboration and articulacy. Exam grades, literacy and cultural horizons improve. A new appreciation for the arts and literature is ignited. SSF leaves teachers with a legacy of improved practice and communities with new theatrical experiences.

To make the Festival happen, we need to raise 2 million pounds each year. Please help us secure the future of the Festival.
