(Celebrating 75 years since its formation)

After the very disappointing cancellation of the 2020 Barnsley Youth Music and Drama Festival due to the Coronavirus pandemic,  we are really hoping to be able to celebrate our 75th Anniversary of the formation of the Festival in 2021 by once again having a terrific Festival week. The Festival is scheduled to take place at the Emmanuel Church, Huddersfield Road, Barnsley S75 1DT from Monday 19th  to Friday 23rd April 2021. Obviously we will be keeping a close watch on the Covid situation at all times, which unfortunately,  may result in rescheduling again. However,  if this does happen there will be no change to the syllabus and no entrants would lose their entry fees if they are unable to attend due to rescheduling. As always the Festival week will end with a Grand Finale concert on the Friday evening.

The updated syllabus for this extremely popular  Festival is now available on our website for prospective music and drama entrants – although nothing has really changed with regard to the classes from the 2020 syllabus. A hard copy of the syllabus and application form  can be obtained by contacting the Festival Administrator on 07903171428  or email Better still,  why not complete our on line application form.

The closing date for entries will be strictly 19th February 2021– so obtain your syllabus as soon as possible so that you may prepare for the classes you wish to enter – GOOD LUCK TO ALL PROSPECTIVE ENTRANTS”.
