Welcome to the 112th Bristol Festival of Music, Speech & Drama

The Bristol Festival of Music Speech and Drama (Formerly known as The Bristol Eisteddfod) was founded in 1903 by Mr W Fowler.  Its overall aim is to promote and encourage the development of artistic talent. (learn more about the festivals history here).

Our festival is an annual event featuring a wide range of musical instrument and vocal classes, competitive and some non-competitive.  It is open to all ages from as young as 4 through to adults, from all walks of life and educational background. 

The festival provides entrants with the opportunity to perform before an audience.  The classes are judged by professional Adjudicators who will provide verbal and written assessments to help the entrants further develop their talents. 

The festival is held in various Bristol venues during the 3-4 weeks prior to the end of the Spring Term. (for the Timetable of Events -see below)

The Bristol Eisteddfod Association is run by volunteers who give freely of their time and expertise.  It is a non-profit making Registered Charity and is always grateful for financial support and sponsorship to ensure its' future.

We hope you enjoy our festival either as a performer or spectator.
