Schools Connect Shakespeare Presents: Spirit of Youth

A virtual arts festival inspired by Shakespeare

Spirit of Youth is a unique festival featuring young performers and artists.

The festival is an amazing collection of drama, dance, art, music and original writing inspired by Shakespeare and created by you.

We are looking to showcase the incredible talent of our young people and celebrate their creativity through online performances.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this special festival.

How it works…

  • There are six virtual tents at our festival shown below, each specialising in an art form.
  • Inside each tent is an introduction, information and ideas to get you started.
  • Once you have an idea start creating, practising and performing. Then, when you are ready, film or photograph your performance or artwork and send it to us.
  • In summer the Spirit of Youth Festival will be launched and your performances and work will be seen nationally.

Visit our virtual tents to find out how you can get involved.
