For the first time this year, the Music Festival will take place in November over the weekend of 23rd and 24th November, rather than in June. It brings it closer to the Speech and Drama Festival which will take place on 16th and 17th November.
The Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival, which takes place annually, is now is its thirteenth year, continuing to celebrate talent and giving entrants the opportunity to perform and get invaluable feedback from expert adjudicators.
The closing date for all entries is 30th September 2019.
Miranda Shirnia, Chair of the Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival said: “2019 is a very important year for us. This year the Music Festival is moving to November to join with Speech and Drama and Classical Guitar, producing one large combined festival.
“The Music Festival has moved away from June and July to avoid the busy exam months of the summer and we hope this will mean more people will be free to share their performances with us.
“Now that Music and Drama have come together it seemed the right time to introduce a NEW class at the Festival which combines the talents needed for both. As a result, this year will see the first ever MUSICAL THEATRE classes at the Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome our new Chair of the Music Section, Sarah Sumner. Sarah comes with a wealth of musical experience both in playing and teaching too.
“So, whether you are new to the Festival or have been coming back year after year we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Festival in November and hope you enjoy sharing your performances with us, taking part in the workshops and trying out the new Musical Theatre classes.”
