Live broadcasts to cinemas around the world from Shakespeare’s home town



Not every school can make the journey down to Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon and see his plays performed at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, so if you can't come to us, we can come to you!

Registration is now open for Henry V on 19 November 2015, Othello on 17 March 2016 and The Merchant of Venice on 21 April 2016 - register now

The new curriculum for KS3 means that students are required to study two Shakespeare plays; we know that one of the best ways to experience Shakespeare is to see it live. Watch our trailer to see how our Schools' Broadcasts are transforming young people's attitudes towards Shakespeare

Over 60,000 students have joined us over our previous five broadcasts.

The Schools' Broadcasts are available free to all UK schools and are supported by downloadable resources tailored for both a primary and secondary audience, including interactive whiteboard resources, downloadable packs and activities, rehearsal clips, interviews and images.

We also have a BSL interpreted version of the broadcasts to make sure they are accessible to D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing students.

Important information about Othello
Othello is a play about love, revenge and betrayal set in Venice and warring Cyprus. This production contains scenes of violence which may be upsetting to younger audiences. 

In our education resource packs  for the Schools' Broadcast we will provide guidance for primary school audiences about which sections of the production to watch and participate in. This will include time coded information about scenes which may be unsuitable for young audiences along with a description of the scene content to enable teachers to make informed decisions about their suitability.  The Teacher Pack for KS3 and above is already available - download now
