Humber  have won a place in the final cut of a crowd-sourced video of Macbeth to be unveiled as part of Shakespeare Lives in Schools Day on Friday 2nd December.

Shakespeare Lives in Schools Day encourages school children of all ages to learn about Shakespeare as a playwright for the whole world, by joining in global celebrations of his 400th anniversary this year.

School children from the United Kingdom and countries across the world including Congo, South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Croatia and Bangladesh, entered a competition to contribute to the retelling of Macbeth. They used video, photos, audio clips, illustrations, posters, presentation slides, comic strips, cardboard puppets and even an Instagram photo feed.

The competition attracted 79 entries from 29 countries with 10 schools making the final cut of the video and Brotherton are one of these!

Humber were invited to choose a favourite scene or key speech from the play and illustrate it, capture it or perform it.

Shakespeare Lives in Schools Day aims to encourage school children to address challenging questions and themes about the human experience in a fun and exciting way.

We will post a link of the video once it is published.
