Blackburn Festival Winners!

Blackburn Festival of Speech, Music and Drama is affiliated with The British and International Federation of Festivals. The Festival was founded in 1945 just after the second world war. This year we entered 12 students into Blackburn Festival and the results were outstanding, every student gained amazing marks of 80 or more! We would like to say a huge congratulations to all who took part and we must give a special mention to those students who won or gained places in the competition.
