Welcome to the Shakespeare Club page!
Each year Sheringham takes part in the Shakespeare Schools Festival, where a group of devoted students work hard to create a short adaptation of a Shakespeare play.
Last year we had amazing success with production of Macbeth, which was performed at the Ilford Broadway Theatre. Take a look at the incredible cast on stage!
We are happy to announce that this year's play is...
Romeo and Juliet!
