A message from the Chair

2021 Music, Speech and Drama Festival cancellation

Dear Performers, Teachers, Parents and Friends,

It is with sadness that I have to announce the cancellation of all music sections and the Speech and Drama Section of the 2021 Festival due to the current circumstances relating to the pandemic.  At present, we are investigating if it is feasible that the Dance Section be postponed and held at a later date in the year.  This will depend on the availability of an adjudicator and a venue. All members of the committee are very disappointed that there will be only one event this year but they are already working hard to plan the Festival for 2022.  All our Section Heads are looking forward to receiving your entries in the autumn and I am sure that there will be some fantastic performances next year!

As promised, entrants will receive a full refund and our Treasurer is already working hard to ensure the payments are made. 

Thank you for your support and understanding.  Take care and stay safe.

Best wishes,

Sandra Lawlor
Chair of Portsmouth Music Festival Committee
