Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world’s largest youth drama festival at The Met.

Join us on 6 and 7 March 2023 for an exhilarating evening of live theatre, featuring a series of unique abridged Shakespeare productions by local schools.

See Shakespeare’s timeless stories brought to life like never before, and support young people from your community as they take to the stage.

“Every child in every school ought to have the chance to experience this magical process” Philip Pullman, author and CSSF patron.

Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a cultural education charity, transforming lives through the unique power of Shakespeare. Our annual festival provides a platform for up to 30,000 young people to express themselves and grow in confidence as they take to a professional stage. These performances are the culmination of months of work in which young people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities have been finding their voice in school rehearsal rooms.
