The team organising Highbridge Festival of The Arts has this week confirmed that it is planning to hold its 74th annual Festival between 7th-19th March 2022.
Organisers say it may be a little different next year, but they can’t wait to welcome competitors and an audience to see and hear speech, drama, dance and music performed by talented local and regional entrants of all ages.
Syllabuses are now live online at www.highbridgefestival.org.uk, together with entry forms.
Secretary Clare Catcheside says: “The Festival has already received lots of entries for the Dance Section, so if you would like to enter, please do so very soon as places may be limited.”
“The Music Section welcomes entries from everyone from beginners to virtuosos – audiences are very friendly and you can choose to perform without the pressure of formal competition.”
“The Festival would also love to welcome individuals and groups to the Speech & Drama Section – there are set verses for poetry recitals and opportunities to showcase original plays, stories & poetry.”
“Many previous entrants are following careers in the performing arts, having first taken to the stage at Highbridge Festival of the Arts.”
She adds that while entries for the 2022 Festival close on 31st December 2021, the organisers would really appreciate receiving entries well before Christmas.
