Last week Abbeyfield welcomed ten schools for the CET annual Shakespeare festival. We saw eleven brilliant 30 minute versions of classic plays, bringing them to life through our talented students. Abbeyfield’s cast, from years 8 to 13 contributed a stunning King Lear, with some first class performances. An inspiring and enriching two days.
