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 join us.


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.

Please keep an eye on this website or our Facebook Page for updates, or contact us using the tab above and we can add you to our Mailing List.

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