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!

Our Schools' Broadcasts are available free to all UK schools. Supported by downloadable resources tailored for both a primary and secondary aged audience, we can help you prepare your students for the performance using a variety of media, from interactive whiteboard resources, downloadable packs and activities, to rehearsal clips, interviews and images. We also have a signing option to make the broadcasts accessible for deaf and partially hearing students.

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 so we invite you and your students to take part in our new Schools' Broadcast Series. You can find out more about the Schools' Broadcasts in our trailer.  

During the 13/14 academic year 45,000 students from 610 primary and secondary schools across the UK joined us for the Schools' Broadcasts of Richard II, Henry IV Part I and Henry IV Part II. Our next broadcast to UK schools, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, will take place on 20 November 2014.

With its focus on friendship, rivalry and self-discovery, and the introduction of themes and theatrical devices that we will see repeated in Shakespeare's later plays, The Two Gentlemen of Verona is perfect for study at KS3. Registration is now open and couldn't be easier. To avoid disappointment please register now and click to sign up below.
