About us

Royal Holloway Shakespeare Society strives to promote the Bard in a way that is inclusive, active, and exciting. The society is a half-and-half performance and academic community. Our events range from productions, socials, workshops, lectures, charity events and volunteering opportunities, and we are a one of the Performing Arts Societies in the Students Union.

Each term, we put on a play that is performed and produced entirely by our members, and last term members took part in creating our first ever audio drama under social distancing regulations.

In the past we have won the most Improved Society 2015, the Skills and Employability Award 2016, the Inclusion and Accessibility award 2018, and several of our members have recieved Crest and Freshman Awards.


The benefits of purchasing a Shakespeare Society Membership include being able to take part in all our performances and audio dramas, come to all of our workshops, come on society trips and attend all of our socials.
