'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.
