The Festival awards bursaries to those performers who in the opinion of the Festival Committees have shown potential and can most benefit from further tuition and experience.


The Festival provides a Bursary to enable one of our young Speech and Drama performers between the ages of 7and 16 years to attend ‘From Page to Stage’. This is a five-day residential summer school of fun and education at Uppingham. 


Bursaries are awarded to performers between the ages of 11 and 21 years to attend summer courses as appropriate to their instrument and level of attainment.  Courses provide a good mix of professional tuition and leisure activities with fellow participants. 

The number of bursaries awarded depends on Festival sponsorship received.
