The Sam Wanamaker festival was an incredible and inspiring experience. It gave me the chance to perform on the most magical stage and meet other students at exactly the same point in their careers and spend a weekend having fun! A vital thing for an actor leaving drama school.

THE SAM WANAMAKER FESTIVAL
Students from the UK’s leading drama schools present scenes by Shakespeare and his contemporaries in the Globe theatre. The public performance offers a heady mix of tragical, historical, pastoral and comical scenes culminating in one mighty festive finale jig.
The annual festival is a springboard for aspiring actors. Several participants have jigged their way straight into the Globe theatre company and have started their professional careers on the Globe stage.
