Ms Rudd: “Being the year of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, it is most fitting that the Summer Youth Theatre Programme in Hastings will be performing a selection of extracts from Shakespeare’s plays. I would like to congratulate Niall and all the young people and parents who have generously given up their time to be a part of this fantastic, voluntary project.

It is clear the students have worked tirelessly over the last three weeks.”
