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 are pleased to announce that our new chairman is Janice Regan, and our new vice-chairman is Josh Cockett.

The syllabus for 2022 is already online, and hard copies will be available next month at which time the entry forms will also be ready. We hope to run the festival as normally as possible next year, but please do keep an eye on the website in case we need to announce changes.

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 2022.
