In 2022/23,"What Country, Friends, is This?" #CSFTwelfthNight marked our first year back in full live performance mode. 82 classes from 55 schools found themselves washed up on the shores Illyria in Shakespeare's beloved comedy Twelfth Night. You can see more production images on our CSF Archive page.
In March we were rocked by the devastating news that one of our original theatre partners, Oldham Coliseum Theatre, would be closing its doors for good. We send our heartfelt love and thanks to the team at the Coliseum, who have been a big part of making this project the huge success that it is. We are incredibly grateful to the team at Middleton Arena, who offered us an alternative performance venue for the Oldham and Rochdale CSF. We continued to work with our theatre partners The Lowry, Royal Exchange Theatre, New Vic Theatre and Derby Theatre.
