The North Lincolnshire (Brigg) Music and Drama Festival began in 1900 as the Musical Competitions, founded by Lady Winefride Elwes, wife of the internationally acclaimed tenor, Gervase Elwes. Apart from two World Wars and a very short period in the fifties, the Festival has continued, year after year to attract entries in Music and Drama classes.
The 2017 syllabus is currently being prepared.
