Speech and Drama Teachers of Ireland Feis dates :
Hybrid Feis 2023
The Speech and Drama Teachers of Ireland Festival has been running for 36 years and has grown into a major event in our annual calendar.
All members are eligible to enter their students into the variety of competitions on offer and we encourage them to do so. We endeavour to create a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere for all students and the board wants to support every teacher to get involved.
Children from five to eighteen years of age take part with their peers to win medals trophies and bursaries. Our adjudicators are experts in their fields and competitions range from Poetry, Public Speaking, Sight Reading, Solo Drama, Mime, Duologues, Television Presenting, Write Your Own Poem, etc.
Taking part in the Feis allows students the opportunity to showcase their work to their peers, an audience and the adjudicator in an encouraging, supportive environment. Students also get the opportunity to watch other children from all over Ireland perform which brings great enjoyment and learning.
The Festival is open to drama schools throughout Ireland for teachers who are members of the Speech and Drama Teachers of Ireland and entries are received from throughout the country. Adjudicators are invited from a list of experienced teachers and examiners from a broad spectrum of Speech & Drama colleges.
