"My heart was beating really fast until I had said all my lines and my bit was over. Then I felt like I wanted to do it all again... It has changed my life." Jacub, pupil on his performance at the 2015 Festival.

Shakespeare Schools Festival gives primary, secondary and special school pupils from all backgrounds the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre, ultimately transforming lives.

"Children who hate books start to love an Elizabethan poet. They discover that making a play can still be what is says on the tin: play." Sir Nicholas Hytner, SSF patron and former Artistic Director of the National Theatre.
