Holland Park School performs Shakespeare's As You Like It

​School puts on a royal performance

Holland Park School in London recently put on a production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It – and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall was given a sneak preview.

The school is one of our long-term supporters and raised over £2,000 with the performance.

A right royal performance

Pupils from Holland Park School were preparing for a production of the Shakespeare play, As You Like It, in February 2015, when a royal visitor dropped by for a glimpse of the upcoming show.

Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, was visiting the school to present a creative writing prize when she was treated to the cast reading a scene from the play. She told them they were ‘very brave’ to read in front of her.

She had barely finished her visit, when HRH The Duchess of Kent arrived for the matinee performance! The show was also enjoyed by students, parents and friends, including celebrity supporter Laura Bailey from Vogue.
