Performances

No performing arts event would be complete without a few outstanding performances! As in previous years, we showcase young talent with morning and lunchtime performances on both days, encompassing music, musical theatre and drama.

Also, for the first time we have a few awards that are being presented on the Performance Stage. Watch the winners of the Will Michael Jazz Education Award and the Charles Grove Award, take the stage and claim their prize!

All performances and awards will take place on the Performance Stage, located at the heart of the exhibition, alongside the Rocksteady Networking Café.
