The Norwood School

Schools Shakespeare Festival 

This year’s festival was the biggest so far. And what a week it was with over 12,000 children waltzing, tiptoeing, break-dancing and sometimes somersaulting onto stages all over the nation. With over 100 performance nights in just 6 days it's was a whirlwind journey for everyone including our very own cast of Macbeth! 

‘We worked so hard and were all so proud to be able to perform in a proper professional theatre’, said William in YR 10. ‘it was quite nerve-wracking to start with but we took it all in our stride and really enjoyed the whole experience!’ Thank you to Mr Blakelock and Mr Kientsch for all their hard work with all the afterschool and weekend rehearsals. We were all very proud of the extraordinary performances from a group of remarkably talented young people.
