We are delighted to report that our ‘virtual’ format Festival for 2021 has proved to be very popular, thank you to all those who entered.

Running the Festival in our normal ‘live’ way was not possible as total compliance with government rules and guidelines to ensure the safety of entrants, our Festival volunteers and the general public during the Covid-19  pandemic was an absolute imperative.  

We had to devise processes and procedures for an on-line Festival from a base of zero and at very short notice.  This was a massive undertaking and was possible only after enormous amounts of work from our organizing team.  

Some comments from satisfied  entrants  

“Congratulations on another festival weekend, it seems like yesterday that you had your good husband selling tickets at the CFT.

The comments that have been flying over the WhatsApp is how very lucky all the kids are to have you giving them such direction, enthusiasm and a love of arts! It was as a joy to hear such from Peter Dayson, what an accomplished and encouraging mediator.

I have to say I thought the format worked exceptionally well and was a joy to have something

‘Go ahead’ despite all restrictions.

So huge congratulations to you and Mrs Hall for all the efforts you put in, they are most gratefully received. Also to Peter Dayson a wonderfully inspiring man from the theatre & performance world!

Hope you manage to get time out in the glorious sunshine over the weekend as we put the January blues behind us!”

“Thank you so much for the brave decision to go ahead with the virtual festival, what a great day we all had.

It was great for the students to have a focus for their practice and for me to see how they are progressing from a performance angle.

Sasha did a wonderful job with the complex technicalities!

Chris was wonderful, as always, giving all of us encouragement and elements to work on.

Best of luck with the other sections, and hopefully we will be back to normal next year!”

“My son Gabriel won 2nd place in 2 of the classes today and I just wanted to let you know how delighted he was.

We both enjoyed all of the performances that we watched and thought that they were all of a very high standard. The feedback from yourself and the adjudicator was very useful and extremely thoughtful too.

Thank you for a great event.”

“Just wanted to thank you all for organising such a brilliant virtual festival. Peter Dayson was one of the best adjudicators I have seen - so encouraging and energetic and with a lot of insight as to how pupils could improve. And Mini - a breath of fresh air!! Thank you all SO much”.
