Welcome

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.

The 2020 festival is only a few weeks away now! The programmes are being put together and will be sent for printing as soon as possible. Please note the alterations in timings and venues for a couple of sections (see below). We will try and let those affected know asap.

We are also looking towards our centenary year in 2021. If you have ever entered the Festival, in any capacity, or know someone who does, I urge you to please get in touch on tmdf@live.co.uk. We would love to hear from you and are trying to amass as much history of the festival as possible.
