What is the William Shakespeare Global Theatre Challenge?

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, in 2016 Nord Anglia is challenging its students from around the world to read, memorise, practise and recite a famous speech from one of Shakespeare’s plays. This can be done in any language!


You will then create a short single take video of your performance in an interesting location, which will be uploaded to the Global Campus to be shared with other students around the world and entered into a competition, which will be judged by Shakespearean experts. There are two different categories, one for the all pupils and one for Secondary. Check out
