Suffolk Festival of Performing Arts

Suffolk Festival 2021-2022

Dear Friends of the Suffolk Festival of Performing Arts,

We are back! We have held two weekends of amazing live performances and are looking forward to three more weekends of dancing and singing in March.

Our first live weekend this year celebrated the music that goes on in the county; we heard strings, woodwind, pianos and singing. Some of the youngest performers experienced their first music festival and all said they would be back next year.

The next event featured speech and drama with some wonderful recitations and a wealth of talent on display.

You can find the names of the prize winners on our website.

In March we shall hold classes for Dance and, new for 2022, a Chorister Class. Details are now available on the entry system.

This is an All-England qualifying year and we are anticipating a lot of entries as some local festivals have not survived the difficulties of the past two years. We recommend you make your entries as soon as the syllabus goes live to guarantee a place.

All entries must be made through a dance school, and we shall not accept any individual entries. Any dance school submitting more than ten entries must provide a runner/volunteer to assist at the sessions in which their entrants compete.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refreshments at the Awards Ceremony or the classes in the spring. Please bring your own refreshments.

If you would like to join us as a volunteer or committee member, or just want a chat about what these roles entail do send an email or speak to us at one of our events. I look forward to seeing you soon.
