The Peterborough Drama Festival aims to promote speech and performance skills for all age groups in order to increase confidence, develop artistic expertise and to provide competition and cooperation amongst all keen students of the arts. Our professional adjudicators are experienced and well qualified and their aim is to inspire and educate, giving to students the benefit of their knowledge and enthusiasm.

"I was highly privileged to be one your adjudicators for the Peterborough 2014 festival. The standard of work was incredibly high, and your teachers are to be commended for all of their hard work, helping you to achieve excellent results. It was obvious that all performers had worked so hard on their pieces, and were also most supportive of fellow performers. As a result the atmosphere for the festival was warm, positive, and encouraging for all who took part. Remember… Festivals don't just happen! And we should all be grateful to the organisers and stewards for all of their hard work throughout the year, ensuring that the festival runs smoothly. So a huge thank you to all of them. I very much look forward to being with you in 2015. All good wishes." - Jonathan Owen

It was a great weekend, thank you so much for making me feel so welcome. You are a super team and deserve your success. I just caught the earlier train which was a bonus. Best wishes to all." - Jill O'Hare

Drama Festivals across the country are facing closure!

The Peterborough Drama Festival, despite reducing numbers, continues to be huge success and the high standard of work is recognised by Adjudicators every year.

We believe that the Peterborough Drama Festival helps to foster vital life skills and we want it to continue with the support of dedicated teachers across the region.

We warmly welcome you to bring your ideas for ways of developing and securing a bright future for our Festival
