Isle of Wight Music, Dance & Drama Festival gets underway

The Isle of Wight Music, Dance & Drama Festival has begun today (March 3rd).

Formerly the Isle of Wight Musical Competition Festival, this joyous spring event has been running for more than 80 years and gives visitors a chance to enjoy some really top quality artistic performances until March 22nd.

The first few days are dedicated to speech, with the Methodist Church Hall in Ryde playing host. Drama will follow next at both the Church Hall and the Riverside Centre in Newport.

Music events are taking place at venues across the island, including St John’s in Newport and the Shanklin Theatre, where the popular Band Day will be held on March 19th. The theatre is also being used for the dance programme that concludes the festivities. 

Individual sessions cost £2.50, or you can purchase a day ticket for £5 or a festival pass for £15. Programmes are priced at £3. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801699847-ADNFCR
