Join us on Friday, 21st June 2019 to see young people aged 11-14 from across England and Wales give a performance of their chosen speech from one of Shakespeare’s plays.
The Performing Shakespeare Competition is designed to allow Key Stage 3 pupils the opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s plays as they were intended – on the stage. Using theatre and performance skills to engage with the texts, our performers bring to life some of the world’s most famous speeches in their own unique interpretations. This is definitely an event not to be missed!
The event will be held at Dartmouth House, the ESU’s International Headquarters in Mayfair. Guests who are not associated with our participating schools are welcome to arrive from 1:30pm for a prompt 2pm start. The event will have finished by 5pm.
We are pleased to be able to offer tickets for this event free of charge and there will be an opportunity to make an donation to our charitable activities on the day. There will be tea and coffees served in the afternoon, but lunch is not included. Please note we have finalists with severe nut allergies so please do not bring any nuts or confectionary with nuts.
