Wirral Festival of Music, Speech and Drama

Opportunity description: 

Hello everyone. I hope you are all staying safe in these very difficult and unusual times.
We are really looking forward running Wirral Festival of Music, Speech and Drama 2021.

We desperately need to replace our current Music Secretary. She is fortunately staying on the committee to support whoever takes on the role. If we don't replace her it is highly likely that we won't be able to run the Music side of the festival next year. I am sure like me you would be devastated.

We had a bumper lot of entries this year so it is clear that there is much interest in the Arts. We are also keen for the festival to run far beyond its 71st year! We are a small and very friendly committee and are passionate about providing opportunites for adults and children alike to take part in Music, Speech and Drama in a friendly and supportive environment. We will provide the new Music Secretary with as much support as they need.

The main aspects of the  Job Role for the Music Secretary is below. Please email me for further information  edwards.caitlin237@gmail.com

Thanks very much Caitlin Edwards (Chair)
