We offer a warm welcome to all the performers at the Festival and are always delighted to receive entries from new Dance schools.
The Dance section is usually held during the Easter week beginning on Easter Monday. It has, however, to take place during the school holidays in North Lincolnshire which can vary with other local authorities so please check this carefully.
The committee reserve the right to commence the festival on the Sunday preceding the advertised start date should entries require, teachers will be notified as soon as possible of such a decision.
All classes are held at the Plowright Theatre which is near the town centre and a few minutes walk from the rail station. There is no parking at the theatre but there are several car parks nearby. The theatre has refreshment facilities providing meals, snacks and drinks throughout the day.
The first Dance section was held in 1938 and since then has become a large event attracting performers from a wide area of the North and the Midlands.
The syllabus can be viewed on the website from mid October.
The Festival is very popular and on occasions entries have had to be returned once the maximum has been reached, which can be before the closing date.. It is important to send entries promptly to avoid disappointment.
Due to the popularity of the Festival especially with group and troupe classes it is sometimes necessary to have a booking system. Information regarding this will be in the programme , usually available approximately 4 weeks prior to the Festival.
