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

Join us 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.

Details of the schools performing at The Met can be found on CSSF’s website:

“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. This year we mark our triumphant return to theatres, after an 18 month pause. 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.
