We hope you enjoyed this year's TMD Festival! Why not have a look at the gala concert photos. We are already looking forward to NEXT year's festival! Our AGM is on May 7th at 2.00pm at 6 Queens Road, Broadstairs. Why not have your say? Or help run your festival? We will be discussing the KCC regulations etc too.

We also really need and appreciate our sponsors. For £60 you can place an advert on our website with links to your own website if you wish, plus adverts in our cyllabus and programme. There will also be provision, for a small extra cost, to advertise on our gala concert programme too. Contact for further details of any of the above.

The Thanet Music and Drama Festival was founded as a charity in 1921, and each year offers a platform for hundreds of amateur musicians, actors and dancers in and around the Thanet area to perform in front of an audience and gain expert critical advice.

The festival consists of five sections (Instrumental, Speech & Drama, Piano, Dance, Vocal & Choral) and is held in February to March every year, culminating in an Award Ceremony & Gala Concert featuring some of the best performances from all sections.
