We hope to run the majority of S&D classes as normal but in an ever fluid climate it may be necessary to restrict the number of entries or limit audience numbers.
We will be accepting entries in the order they are completed from December 2021. Entries will deem to be completed on receipt of fee. Entries will close on 19th Jan but should we reach capacity in any class before that date we will post an update, so please watch this page.
Depending on any remaining restrictions at the time, and following the success of the event in 2021, selected classes may be offered online
We hope whether it is Live or Virtual to continue to keep the spirit of Festival buoyant and provide a positive experience for all entrants
At the Mid-Somerset we try to combine all of the traditional elements you might expect to find in a Festival with a modern approach to Drama and the Performing Arts. Many of our classes address the requirements of the National Curriculum and the creation of original work is actively encouraged.
The quest to keep the syllabus fresh and relevant is an ongoing task and each year brings additions and deletions to our core programme.
The joy of Speech and Drama is that it is accessible to everyone. No equipment necessary – all you need is enthusiasm, and the benefits are enormous. The pursuit of excellence in performance will inevitably lead to the development of communication skills in general thus helping our young people to prepare for the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.
