Clifton College recently participated in Bristol's Shakespeare Schools Festival, putting on an abridged version of The Winter's Tale.

It was an excellent chance to meet with other local schools and perform in the Tobacco Factory Theatre, one of Bristol's most exciting performance spaces. The show was well-reviewed as the students put together a sensitive rendition of Shakespeare's play, and they enjoyed and learned from the experience of working to professional standards.

In between rehearsal and performance, the group was fortunate to experience a workshop with Travelling Light (a local group) whose comic antics and energy gave Clifton's actors plenty to think about.
