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.

We were delighted to be able to hold this year's festival, and feel we were almost "back to normal". We hope that next year we will be able to hold our Gala Concert again too.

We are already planning next year's festival and the dates/provisional dates, are listed below.

Please contact the secretary on tmdf@live.co.uk if you wish to join us on zoom for our AGM on May 8th at 3pm.

Please do take a look at our online exhibition (History page), created to celebrate the Festival's centenary this year.

We look forward to seeing you in 2023.
