Seven schools and youth theatre companies from around the county, including Bloxham School, will be taking part in The Connections Festival this May Bank Holiday, April 30 to May 2.

The National Theatre’s Connections festival celebrates the talent and passion of young theatre-makers.

Each year, Connections offers an opportunity for youth theatres and school drama groups to stage plays specially written for young people aged 13-19 by some of the UK’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform them in leading theatres around the country – along with the chance of performing at the National Theatre itself.

On May bank holiday weekend, The North Wall will welcome seven of these schools and youth companies from Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties to perform.
