WSP Y10 Macbeth Theatre Trip

Published on 25/04/23

As part of your son/daughter’s English Literature GCSE they have been studying the play ‘Macbeth’. To support students’ engagement or the text, we have booked a limited number of tickets for a performance at Newcastle’s Northern Stage theatre. Seeing this fantastic performance will be a stimulating, exciting experience. Not only will the live performance be enriching, it will also mean that students are much better-equipped to write about the play- a compulsory part of their GCSE course. We are very excited to run this trip as a joint WSP event between both Caedmon College and Eskdale school.
