Pontefract Festival of Music Speech and Drama

The Pontefract Festival is the only one of its kind in the Local Authority District & gives a great deal of pleasure to people of all ages either as part of the audience enjoying the competitive performances & the winner’s concert; or as competitors gaining experience of public performance in their own particular specialty where they have the opportunity to gauge their own work against that of their contemporaries & gain the benefit of expert advice & comments from highly experienced professional adjudicators in both drama and music.Established in 1903 the Pontefract Music Festival offers the children and adults of the town and surrounding districts the opportunity to develop a whole range of performance skills.The Festival’s challenge to those taking part is to encourage the ideals of dedication, determination and confidence, and give competitors the opportunity to perform in front of an audience. In return the Festival offers professional adjudication with dedicated feedback to enhance and encourage competitor’s further development of performance skills.“To learn to lose without feeling defeated is a sign of maturity”.
