This year’s programme of events for schools will have a strong emphasis on drama. We have teamed up with Arty-Fact Theatre Company, who will bring a magical theatre production of Oliver Twist to the Guildhall on Friday 18th October. All of Berwick’s First Schools will be invited to send a group of children along to enjoy the show.
We will also be offering the Middle Schools and Senior Schools a series of drama workshops focusing on Shakespeare’s plays. Arty-Fact will be providing these for us.
Additionally, there will be a series of lectures and presentations at BURC (St Paul’s, Spittal). Schools will be invited to send students along. Students will also be admitted free of charge to the Festival’s opening event: a drama production at The Maltings Theatre on Friday 18th October.
All of the above events are provided free of charge, due to the generosity of our sponsors.
