The 2021 Speech & Drama Eisteddfod returns on Saturday 7th August and Sunday 8th August at a new venue:   Rathmines Theatre,  Stilling Street, Rathmines.

We anticipate strong interest from teachers and practitioners after the long break. Eisteddfods are a great way for our younger generation to gain experience in performing at a high level, in front of a crowd and in a competition setting.

The very young (4 years old) to older teenagers and adults  will entertain with their interpretations of humour, tragedy, storytelling, mime, public  speaking, and more. They will improvise in groups, give impromptu speeches, dress in costume to present characters and compete for championships.

The sessions are open to the public and cost $5 to attend. The Rathmines Theatre is in a lovely setting right on the shores of Lake Macquarie. Enjoy a very entertaining event & visit a well-appointed new performing arts facility.

Performance Dates: Saturday 7th August and Sunday 8th August

Location: Rathmines Theatre, 3 Stilling St Rathmines.

Adjudicator: Daniella Jones
Convenor: IshbelBeadle
