The Primary Shakespeare Company engages, inspires and empowers primary school children in the UK who come from disadvantaged backgrounds using the magic of drama.


They send professional theatre practitioners into primary schools, working with teachers, to deliver truly inspiring lessons using a Shakespeare Play. The children then come together with other schools in their area to create a festival during which the play is re-assembled, with each school performing their own part of the whole play.


The charity aims to bridge the gap in attainment by empowering children through the magic of drama and its high profile patrons include Olivier award-winning actor Billie Piper, Downton Abbey legend Hugh Bonneville, Hu$tle star Adrian Lester, Baroness Estelle Morris and Eric Bolton.
