An arts festival which celebrates talented groups and individuals starts next week.

The 71st annual Highbridge Festival of Arts will begin

The festival showcases talented performers from four to 84 across speech, drama, dance and music.

This year’s event will open with two days of speech and drama classes at The Princess Theatre, in Burnham, on Monday and Tuesday.

This will be followed by the dance portion of the festival from Wednesday to March 11.

There will also be music categories taking place from March 12-17.
