Millfield Prep takes part in BBC Radio ‘Clueless’ programme to commemorate Shakespeare
5th May 2016

Three Millfield Prep pupils with a keen interest in speech and drama were chosen to read a Shakespeare scene during BBC radio's Clueless programme. Commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and in collaboration with the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, the programme was a fun-filled quest with clues read out on live on air.

Listeners called in with their suggestions of where the next scene would be read and sent the presenters off to various locations around Somerset and Bristol.

Fortunately, the listeners guessed our location correctly and with the iconic Glastonbury Tor as a backdrop, Caitlin, Henry and William performed a scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was aired live on BBC Somerset and BBC Bristol.

It was a memorable opportunity for the pupils, two of whom have gained drama scholarships to Millfield and further experience for Caitlin who won the 2015 Bath Young Actor of the Year Award.
