Shakespeare Schools Festival - A Successful Performance!

A few weeks ago some of our students performed in a play at Kings Lynn Corn Exchange as part of the Shakespeare School Festival. It was a great opportunity to showcase some of our students acting skills and get them into the limelight! Click here to read our lovely thank you letter from the Shakespeare School Festival organisers.

After our schools performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' at the Corn Exchange Theatre in Kings Lynn, we received a lovely thank you letter from the organisers of Shakespeare Schools Festival who came to watch the show. 

We are very all very proud of how well the performance went and had a great time having a sleepover at school afterwards! 

Below is an extract from the thank you letter we received:

''Congratulations on a successful performance at the Corn Exchange last week, and thank you for being part of the 2014 Shakespeare Schools Festival. This year was the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth and we worked with over 1,000 schools and 35,000 students across the UK.  You and your students were part of something huge! 

We know that it is no small feat to get a cast of young people performing Shakespeare in a professional venue but you made it happen. And what a night it was! It was a privilege to be there and experience the magic of the evening. I have also received excellent feedback about your students and the whole evening from Nadia, Anna and the staff at the Corn Exchange. On a personal note, I had one of my most joyful SSF experiences to date in King's Lynn and you and Churchill Park were a big part of that. Standing side stage watching your production and seeing the Howard Junior School cast dance, clap and sing along to your rendition of "Celebrate good times" is a Festival highlight that I do not think will be surpassed this year. The joy was tangible and, for me, bringing two schools together like that is what SSF is all about. It was also lovely to speak with you and the students afterwards - you have a group of committed, thoughtful and creative young people that were a pleasure to work with. I hope that you managed to get at least some rest at your sleepover!''
