The closing date for entries was Friday 22nd April 2022. For each entry where age is required, it is the age on 1st September 2021 so that all the entrants in a class are in the same school year or school years.
If an entrant has been a pupil of the Adjudicator in the year prior to the Festival, they should contact the Section Head before entering.
SPEECH & DRAMA CLASS DETAILS
In 2022 most classes will be live competitions, although a few will be online. The live competitions will be on Sunday 8th May in The King Alfred School and The King Alfred Phoenix Theatre If there are enough entries, we will also hold classes on Thursday 5 May. We will have plenty of classes for you to enter and are thrilled to welcome back Cally Foster to adjudicate.
The North London Festival is open to all. We would love to welcome more schools, private teachers and aspiring actors to enter and make NLF a highlight of their dramatic year

One Minute Monologue Competition
In summer 2020, we held our first online speech & drama competition to celebrate the Festival’s centenary in November 2020.
Take a look at the One Minute Monologue winners from last year.
Last year some of our participants told us what the festival meant to them – watch this video to listen to their enthusiasm as they talk about what they feel they gain from competing.
