Worcester Competitive Arts Festival 2021
2021 was the 70th Anniversary for the annual Worcester Competitive Arts Festival and in this celebratory year, the event was held virtually. The festival celebrates performance in its many forms: poetry, drama, choral, singing, speech, music, aiming to give amateur musicians and actors in Worcestershire and beyond, an opportunity to demonstrate skills in a friendly and supportive environment. In previous years, RGS Worcester has always been pleased to host the event in school.
Several talented RGS Worcester pupils entered this year’s competition and achieved excellent results in a number of categories. Congratulations also to RGS pupils Sasha Penlington and Kieran Lilley who were awarded the William Lewis Salver and the Rotary Young Performer Trophy respectively.
