Mayor Making 2019

We were delighted to have our drama teacher committee member Rhian Vaughan represent the RWB Arts Festival at the recent Mayor Making ceremony in Royal Wootton Bassett.

The ceremony was a wonderful way to welcome in the new mayor Steve Watts! We wish him all the best during his time in office and look forward to having his support for our Festival this year.

Keeping you up-to-date!

You may be interested to know that the MUSIC FESTIVAL HAS MOVED from the summer to November this year. We wanted to move away from the busy exam season to make it easier for our performers to take part. Music and Drama will now take place over the following two weekends: 16th & 17th and 23rd & 24th November.

Plus we have introduced a NEW MUSICAL THEATRE section with solo, duet and group classes for those who love to sing songs from FILMS and SHOWS.

There will also be a new ONLINE ENTRY SYSTEM this year which should make entering the Festival easier for all.

If you have any questions or would like a paper copy of the Syllabus feel free to ask. And, in accordance with GDPR regulations, if you would like to be removed from the mailing list just let us know.

Best wishes and we look forward to welcoming you to the Festival in November.

Chair, Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival

Our Music, and Speech and Drama Festivals are now both in November!

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.”
