Speech and Drama
This section falls into two parts. Speech is open
to everyone who has a love of language. It is open to all ages and all abilities
and it no longer requires the professional training of the elocution teacher.
The professional is the adjudicator, and they will give advice, encouragement
and praise. Many candidates use this part of the Festival to build confidence in
delivering the spoken language and there are a variety of classes from which you
can choose. Being able to speak in public is an essential skill, identified by
the National Curriculum. It is also a great source of pleasure so do come and
We have taken the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Festival,
scheduled for 8 - 20 March 2021, due to the Covid-19 situation and
uncertainty about the future. We are, however, busy planning for a great
comeback in 2022 and look forward to welcoming you to our Festival in
March 2022, either as a competitor, teacher or member of the audience.

Our next Festival will take place between 7 and 19 March 2022
