*EVENT SOLD OUT* Please check with the main school office for any ticket returns.

On 11th October, Fulford School will host the Royal Shakespeare Company as they perform their First Encounters production of Twelfth Night, A hilarious story of heartbreak, hoaxes and hidden identities.


Year 7 will watch the matinee performance and there will be an evening performance at 6.30pm. Tickets for the evening performance are available in advance on ParentPay for £5.


Shipwrecked and separated from her twin brother, Viola washes up on a strange shore and into an even stranger situation.


Disguising herself as a man called Cesario, Viola finds work with Duke Orsino, only to fall head over heels in love with him. But Orsino is in love with Olivia, who is grieving for her brother and refusing all offers of romance. Until, that is, she sees Cesario for the first time.


Add one ambitious butler and some practical joking servants and you have a hugely entertaining story of hoaxes, heartbreak and hidden identities.


RSC First Encounters productions are created to give 7-13 year olds a fantastic first experience of Shakespeare whilst also being brilliantly engaging for all audiences. Using edited versions of the original language, they bring the plays to life on stage in just 90 minutes.
