The syllabus is out for the 95th North Lincolnshire Music and Drama Festival, with entries required by the earlier than usual date of Monday November 17.

The festival will also be early in 2015, with music classes featuring between March 9 and 12 March, drama from March 16 to 18 and the concert on Saturday March 21.

The early date is due to the earlier date of the school Easter holidays.

The festival committee has a new entries secretary in well known local music teacher and pianist Mary Knaggs who has replaced long serving official Marjorie Grisedale who has retired from the role.

Details of how to apply to take part in children, youth or adult classes can be found in the prospectus which also includes an application form.

Prospectuses are available from Wallheads, Grandad’s Shed, Tourist Information, Michelle’s Hairdressers and Brigg Garden Centre Coffee House - and they are free.

Solo vocalists, choirs, pianists, strings players and enthusiasts on verse speaking or drama groups can apply to take part in classes covering a wide range of age groups.

These mostly take place in the Angel Site for drama and at St John’s Church for music, while the concert is again at The Vale Academy.

President of the Society is Beryl Potts of Caistor and Chairman is Tom Glossop of Brigg.
