CALLING ALL SPEECH AND DRAMA PERFORMERS
Only days left to enter the Royal Wootton Bassett 2018 Speech and Drama Festival!
The Royal Wootton Bassett Speech and Drama Festival is gearing up for its fantastic annual event which takes place on 17th and 18th November at the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy this year. The festival, which draws performers from all over Wiltshire and beyond, is now in its 9th year.
The closing date for all entries is 30th September 2018. A copy of the syllabus and entry forms can be found here.
There are a wide range of classes available including Acting, Reading, Mime, Television News Reading and many more. We welcome entries from participants of all ages, from the very young to adults. There are opportunities for groups, pairs and solos.
Sandra McDowell, Chair of the Speech and Drama Festival said: “Our Speech and Drama Festival is thriving and growing rapidly as classes across the board are expanding. In 2009, we started with just one adjudicator, now we have four!
After its success last year, we’re really excited to be adding additional recital classes where entrants can perform a selection of poetry, prose, acting under one theme. We are also increasing the number of novice classes in both verse speaking and solo acting which is exclusively available to performers who are yet to win a cup at the festival. We have also launched an additional Choral Group Speaking class and a Shakespeare class for younger performers. Following great feedback last year, we will also continue to film our Television News Readers, giving them an even more professional and realistic experience. We believe there is something for everyone!
Our four expert adjudicators will be there at the festival to provide valuable feedback to our entrants. We know they will be engaging, inspirational and enriching.
We’d love you to get involved with the festival this year, either as a performer or a member of our valued audience.”
The Royal Wootton Bassett Speech and Drama Festival is the only one in Wiltshire affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals.
In addition, the RWBAF’s specialist Classical Guitar Festival will take place alongside the Speech and Drama Festival at Royal Wootton Bassett Academy. Expert guitarist Gary Ryan will be there to adjudicate the entrants. The closing date for the Classical Guitar Festival is 13th October 2017.
