Canford was delighted to welcome open air theatre company 'The Lord Chamberlain's Men' for a performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' at the school.

Formed in 2004, the group is the premier all-male Shakespeare touring company which visits over eighty venues throughout the UK and internationally over the summer months. The actor-musicians follow the same principles that Shakespeare himself championed clear, bold, dynamic story-telling with music, songs and comedy.

In addition to the wonderful performance, Shell pupils were also involved in drama workshops where they were given excellent insights into Shakespearian theatre and an understanding of the messages within the play.

Laurence Kennedy, Head of English, commented:

'We were delighted to host this prestigious company at Canford. They truly brought the Shakespearian theatre to life for our Shell pupils and provided an excellent addition to our classroom work."
