On Friday 7th July, we welcomed back the Young Shakespeare Company for the Shakespeare Festival, our final outreach event of the academic year. The day consisted of two workshops, with 120 children from 8 different schools attending. This year, they worked on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night– re-enacting the play with no prior knowledge of the storyline. One teacher commented: ‘some of our children struggle with self-confidence but actively participated and really enjoyed themselves.’
We have worked with approximately 40 local primary schools this year and have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming each and every one of them through our doors. Our programme for the next academic year (2017-18) will be released early in September. Please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your school would like to be involved.
Have a lovely summer break!
