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



Last November over 30,000 students joined us in a worldwide classroom to watch our first free schools broadcast.  Richard II, featuring David Tennant in the title role, was streamed into primary, secondary and undergraduate classrooms, followed by a live Q&A with both David and RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran hosted by Konnie Huq.

The RSC has once again collaborated with Ravensbourne College to continue our free schools broadcast series with Henry IV Parts I & II on 6 June and 30 June 2014 for schools in the UK.

With their focus on friendship and father/son relationships, and featuring fantastic battle scenes, the Henry IV plays are a perfect introduction to Shakespeare in performance for KS2 primary pupils.  For secondary pupils, both plays explore the themes of honour, leadership and responsibility, making them ideal for study at either KS3 or KS4.

Registration is simple - you can sign up below and select which of the broadcasts you wish to participate in. Schools in the UK can sign up for one or both of the screenings. Please note that registration for Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 will close on the 12 May. To avoid disappointment please register now.
