Today, five of our pupils had the thrilling experience of performing Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey! As part of the national “Shakespeare week”, we were invited by the organisers of the Shakespeare Schools Festival and Westminster Abbey to share some extracts from previous performances. Before the performance, the children were lucky enough to be given a guided tour of the Abbey, including a special visit to the tomb of Edward the Confessor. The children then took their places in Poets’ corner, in front of the Shakespeare memorial, in order to perform their pieces. We were very proud of all of the pupils, who managed to pull the performance together in record time – well done everyone!
One thought on “Shakespeare at Westminster Abbey”
It was wonderful to meet you all, such a talented group of students! Well done, a brilliant performance and we hope to welcome students and staff from Charles Dickens Primary School to Westminster Abbey again in the future. Lou (Education Officer, Westminster Abbey)
