We look forward to welcoming existing and new entrants from all over the country, and will ensure that the Feis is accessible to as many students as possible.
*All measures will be taken to ensure that Feis 2022 takes place in a safe environment.
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 a safe, encouraging, and 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 welcomed from throughout the country. Adjudicators are invited from a list of experienced teachers and examiners from a broad spectrum of Speech & Drama colleges.
While Feis 2022 may be presented in a slightly different way, we are working hard to ensure that participants experiences are as positive as always.
