Speech & Drama has some of the most entertaining sections of the Kingaroy Eisteddfod. Speech and Drama provides opportunities for amateur performers from young to adults.

Our sections include :

Poetry - Humorous and non-humorous, Australian, composing of own poetry, poems in other languages.


Public Speaking,



Character Recitals,

The Eisteddfod gives all entrants the chance to gain confidence through performance with supportive and constructive feedback from our esteemed Adjudicators. We have had wonderful feedback from previous adjudicators.

We want the competitors to have fun, to experience poetry as a form, and to learn something.

We encourage young speakers and actors to participate for performance experience and gain essential experience in putting their work to practice.

A confident stance, a clear voice and clear speech, a sense of pleasure in performing, energy, good timing (not too quick, not too slow, and some variation in pace), use of pausation, and facial and vocal expression all support the competitor to engage the audience, and consequently, are desirable. Not many competitors manage to get everything right – it’s all about learning, and feeling good about that time on stage.

Our Adjudicator this year is Bev Coutts A.A.C.M.(TD)
