2021 Festival Covid Update

We as a committee are all agreed we would like the festival to go ahead next year if at all possible, however as I am sure you will understand with the current pandemic situation we are not in a position to go ahead at this moment in time. Currently there are no suitable government guidelines available and the situation is changing almost daily.

It was agreed at our meeting on 27th Oct 2020 that we would hold off taking entries until the New Year – we have another meeting scheduled for the first week of January to review. Our hope is that there will be a bit more information available to help us make sensible decisions and also to plan the logistics of how the festival would be organised should we decide to go ahead.

Please be aware, if we do decide to go ahead we will require entries and payment within a very short space of time – most likely within a few weeks of sending confirmation we are going ahead. This is unavoidable as we will not have sufficient time to put a programme together by April otherwise. This will also mean programmes may be a little later than usual being issued however we will endeavour to get a running order to every dance school as early as possible.

Scunthorpe Musical Festival joined the British and International Federation of Festivals in 1924. Over the years we have grown into three flourishing sections, each lasting a full week. In addition we organise a week’s residential drama summer school at BISHOP GROSSETESTE UNIVERSITY , LINCOLN.

In October 2011, we were awarded a Gold Medal by the Federation for our organisational skills and we are well-known for being a friendly festival.

We aim to encourage young people from all areas to gain confidence in public, to share experiences and with the help of professionals to make progress in their chosen disciplines.

Our major strengths are always using federation adjudicators, having all necessary stewards C.R.B. checked
