Young people will lead and co-produce exciting entertainment that will celebrate the life and work of William Shakespeare.

Local residents are invited to join the festival, 'Random Acts of Shakespeare', will take place at Thomas Middlecott Academy on Saturday, April 21, noon to 5pm.

This brand new festival promises to transform the school into a perfect festival location, offering something for the whole family from performances, music and video DJ'ing, dance, arts and crafts, and a film screening. All work showcased at the festival will have been created or produced by the young people involved in the project.

'Random Acts of Shakespeare' is one of twelve young people led festivals happening on the same day across East and West Midlands.

The festival has been jointly produced by students at Thomas Middlecott Academy, Boston Young Carers, and artist director Charley Genever,

The festival is delivered in partnership between Transported and Thomas Middlecott Academy, supported by The Mighty Creatives and the Emerge project. Emerge Boston has been made possible by Spirit of 2012.
