The Wensleydale Festival Of Music and Speech

Thank you to everyone for a wonderful 2017 Tournament of Speech and Song. 
The 8th Biennial Championship
We would like to congratulate Alana who has been chosen to go forward to the The British and International Federation of Festivals Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire Festivals Championship on Saturday 9th September at Carleton Community High School in Pontefract.
Audience members who saw the performances Alana gave over our tournament fortnight must surely agree that she is a very talented young lady.
If you are able then please go along in support - the championships begin at 10.30am and admission is by ticket on the door at a cost of £5.00.
Well Done Alana and grateful thanks to Diana Hartley for being an amazing teacher and accompanist.

The 2018 Tournament will be held at the Methodist Church School Rooms in Leyburn from W/C March 12th (Speech) and W/C March 19th (Music) with the final day (Friday 23rd March) being held at the Tennants Garden Rooms, Leyburn from approximately 6:30pm.  This promises to be a spectacular full day of school choirs during the day and senior choirs during the evening in the wonderful surroundings of the newly opened Garden Rooms at Tennants Auctioneers in Leyburn. 

We are honoured to welcome our professional adjudicators for this year. They are both chosen from the most respected and experienced adjudicators in Great Britain and we look forward to their valued and helpful comments on all our performers this coming festival.  We are sure both competitors and audiences alike will enjoy and learn from their expert judging of our participants as ever.
