Shakespeare Week is a new national, annual celebration to bring Shakespeare to life vividly for millions of primary school children.

Happy Shakespeare Week!
From 17-23 March Shakespeare Week is being celebrated in schools, theatres, historic sites, museums, galleries, cinemas, and libraries all over the U.K. Together, we’re giving every child the chance to be inspired by Shakespeare’s stories, language and heritage.

  • Shakespeare Week will offer children the chance to take part in creative and cultural learning experiences in schools and outside the classroom.
  • This website brings together FREE resources for teachers and promotes events and activities in cultural and heritage organisations nationwide.
  • Every child whose school participates in Shakespeare Week will receive the Passport to Shakespeare encouraging them to continue learning at school, beyond the classroom and with their families.
