THE 2014 MASTERCLASS

 

On SUNDAY 14th SEPTEMBER 2014 at the ALDERLEY EDGE SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, the Alderley Edge Festival will hold a 'Speech and Drama ' Masterclass.  This masterclass is administered by the Alderley Edge Festival, through the major sponsorship of one of our honarary patrons Mrs. Carole Nash OBE.  The Masterclass will give individual coaching in the morning and group classes in the afternoon.  Specially selected Speech and Drama winners and other improving entrants will be invited to attend this masterclass.  This will be an exciting and excellent opportunity for budding actors and/or speech students to experience coaching from the experts.

 

   

PURPOSE AND FUNCTION OF THE FESTIVAL

 

The objects of the Festival are educational and non-profit making and comprise of holding the Festival and any other events of an educational nature complementary to the Festival.

The Festival provides a platform for amateur performances with an educational element provided by professional adjudicators.

Our Vision is to encourage and provide a conduit through public performances for young children to express themselves through music, speech and drama and to showcase and nurture this talent in the performing arts.

We still believe in the ideal that the youth of today are talented in the arts and will always have something to offer. This talent is in all of us, and if, as a Society, we can nurture even a small amount of that talent, then we are making a difference. It is this difference that keeps us working so hard to make the Festival what it is.

CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE 2014

It is incredible that when you think you have reached a pinnacle in the number of performers participating in the Festival, the next year proves you wrong.  The Festival in 2013 was another milestone in our illustrious history - yet again an increase in numbers (we had 2736 participants).  It is a tremendous feeling knowing that what we strive for as a Committee - to bring music, speech and drama to our youth - is having an increasing effect on the number of participants.  It is a testament to the drive and determination of the whole Committee, and to the commitment and passion of our daily stewards and volunteers, that The Alderley Edge Festival is held in such high regard.

In addition, we are very grateful to all this year's adjudicators, newswho guided, inspired and gave great support to all our participants.  These highly qualified and experienced people are all members of the adjudicators' group approved by The British and International Federation of Festivals.  The Federation does a wonderful job in supporting the festival movement by providing information, support, advice and essential services to its members.  I have just returned from an extremely up-beat, informative and very entertaining National Conference in Harrogate, that has exemplified the great job that the Federation does on our behalf.

This year has also been a milestone in our on-line entry system.  Not only is it now ..........
