Following a very successful 2013 Festival, we are now already busy preparing the syllabus, dates and venues for next year's festival! The PROPOSED dates can be seen below but these are not yet confirmed.
Our Gala Concert, with the trophies awarded by Christ Church's Dr Keith Gwilym, was, as ever, a wonderful occasion confirming the wealth of talent we have in Thanet. Photos of the trophy winners can be seen on the news page where you can also download this year's programme.
The Thanet Music and Drama Festival was founded as a charity in 1921, and each year offers a platform for hundreds of amateur musicians, actors and dancers in and around the Thanet area to perform in front of an audience and gain expert critical advice.
The festival consists of five sections (Instrumental, Speech & Drama, Piano, Dance, Vocal & Choral) and is held in February to March every year, culminating in an Award Ceremony & Gala Concert featuring some of the best performances from all sections.
