Inspired By Excellence

Dudley Festival of Music, Drama and Dance provides a platform opportunity for young and old to perform and present their talents in front of a live audience.

Everyone receives oral and written feedback from adjudicators who are all professionals in their fields as well as taking away with them a copy of the adjudicator’s written comments and a certificate of participation. Come and further your performance skills, learn from the adjudicators and your peers, and enjoy the stimulus of competition.

We warmly welcome audience members at all our competitions.

The festival is run in association with Dudley Arts Council and affiliated to the British Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance and Speech. Reg. Charity No. 1048099
