Under 25s will be offered the opportunity to see Andrew Scott in Hamlet completely free as part of the Almeida's Hamlet For Free festival.

Five performances, which will feature Scott in the title role, will be exclusively for audiences under 25 between 10 to 13 April, which is after the general run ends.

More tickets for all performances in the run will also go on sale on 20 February.

Hamlet For Free will feature four days of free performances, events, and workshops inspired by the themes of Shakespeare's play.

Events during the festival will include an interactive promenade piece, Press Go, created in response to the themes of Hamlet, a number of workshops offering an opportunity to learn from the likes of Rupert Goold, Vanessa Kisuule and spoken word artist Polarbear, and a panel event on the themes of leadership and division.

The cast of Robert Icke's production also includes Joshua Higgott, Angus Wright, Juliet Stevenson and Jessica Brown Findlay.

Tickets are available now through the Almeida website.

Hamlet runs at the Almeida from 28 February until 13 April, with previews from 14 February.
