Our 2021 Programme
In giving young people 2021, with CSSF, children will play, recover and build towards the future.

We have designed three workshops for the summer term that can be run in term-time or during the summer holidays, specifically offering elements of outdoor learning to various degrees.
• Shakespeare Schools Film Festival – taking CSSF’s 20 years of experience working with schools on Shakespeare performances, and adding the expertise of our partner Into Film, building a project that develops children’s confidence, creativity and collaboration; and creates filmed outcome which you can showcase, shout about and keep forever.
• Shakespeare Schools Theatre Festival – we host the largest youth drama Festival in the world, taking place in professional theatres across the UK. The Festival welcomes thousands of students aged 8-18 and hundreds of teachers from primary, secondary, SEND schools and Pupil Referral Units nationwide. CSSF facilitates this experience and supports schools by providing scripts and resources, CPD and over-the-phone support for teachers, and workshops and a performance venue experience for participating pupils.
