Join us at the historical and elegant Senate House Library, a central London location which is home to some of the most impressive event spaces in London. The night will begin with a drinks reception in Crush Hall before moving in to Beveridge Hall - designed in the early 20th Century by Charles Holden, this impressive space still retains its sophistication and grandeur.

Special Guests

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is honoured to welcome some of our esteemed Patrons to perform alongside some of the 300,000 young people whose lives have been touched by the festival including (subject to availability) Dame Harriet Walter, Paterson Joseph and John Heffernan.

We are thrilled to announce that our host for the evening will be the fabulous Jan Ravens! With her unique mix of hilarious mimicry and sharp satire, Jan Ravens is one of the UK’s most successful impressionists and we are so pleased that she can join us.


We have several exclusive sponsorship packages available, please contact Hannah Watson, Director of Income Generation and Communications, for further information on: or 0207 601 1812
