The English-Speaking Union invites you to join us at the Sam Wanamaker Theatre of Shakespeare’s Globe for the Grand Final of the ESU Performing Shakespeare Competition on Friday, 23 June. The Performing Shakespeare Competition is a chance for schools across the country to practice their oracy and drama skills. Schools have been competing in heats across the country to secure a place in the grand final at the San Wanamaker Theatre.
