School’s Shakespeare Festival!


This year a new proud tradition was launched when every school in the Griffin Schools participated in the Schools Shakespeare Festival! Performances of classics, such as Macbeth, Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream were directed by Griffin staff and performed by Griffin pupils in professional venues.
Taking part in the world’s largest youth drama festival in theatres such as the Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury, the Woodville Halls Theatre, Gravesend, The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry and Stratford Circus in East London was a life changing experience for everyone involved. Audiences were wowed by the performances and the actors brought energy, individuality and enthusiasm to these well known plays. Parents and friends were visibly impressed by what our pupils are capable of achieving and local press and radio stations were alerted to the news that young Griffins were taking to the stage all over the country!
