Last year’s programme of events for schools had a strong emphasis on drama. We teamed up with Arty-Fact Theatre Company, who brought a magical theatre production of Oliver Twist to the Guildhall on Friday 18th October. All of Berwick’s First Schools were invited to send a group of children along to enjoy the show.
We also offered the Middle Schools and Senior Schools a series of drama Arty-Fact workshops focusing on Shakespeare’s plays.
Additionally, there were a series of lectures and presentations at BURC (St Paul’s, Spittal). Schools were invited to send students along. Students were 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 were provided free of charge, due to the generosity of our sponsors.
