The Festival of the Performing Arts  (Languages)

The French,  Jèrriais  and Modern Languages Sections of the Jersey Eisteddfod now make up a Competitive Festival of Performing Arts for languages which will be held in January each year.

 

In the light of the present pandemic a decision has been taken to cancel the majority of classes within the 2021 Languages Festival.
 

Classes in Jèrriais will be held online and details will be on the Jèrriais page of the website as soon as possible.

"The ideal of the competitive festival is not to gain a prize or defeat a rival, but to pace one another on the road to excellence".
