Established in 2006, Guildford Shakespeare Company (GSC) is an award-winning professional theatre company and one of the largest professional producers of live Shakespeare and workshops in Surrey. The company runs a huge range of in-house education classes for all ages, as well as developing community outreach projects and actively working with schools in Surrey.

GSC Saturdays ignite the imagination of young actors in small friendly groups. The young people work with professional actors and stage combat instructors, playing fun games, rehearsing plays and learning more about the world of theatre. GSC runs several outreach programmes with some of the most disadvantaged young people in Surrey by offering potentially life-changing results for the participants. Children on work experience programmes are hosted and bursaries granted for children who may not be able to afford the experience.

HSYA provided a further grant to enable three specially selected young people from Weyfield Primary Academy in Guildford to continue to gain benefit from a generous indefinite placement in the GSC Saturday Drama Club. The High Sheriff and other distinguished guests were again fortunate to have witnessed the emerging talent of these young people at the HSYA Annual Celebration event held at ExxonMobil.
