The 40th Wenlock Olympian Society Live Arts Festival opened last weekend, and the event is now in full swing with school-age children competing in various classes of music, dance and drama.
Bridgnorth Endowed School music teacher, Mr Fox, has been invited to judge the music categories, which include singing, instrumental and choir performances.
The festival, held at the Edge Arts Centre in Much Wenlock, has taken place every year since 1979 and is organised by the Wenlock Olympian Society.
The focus of the society is to preserve the work of Dr William Penny Brookes, who is widely recognised as being the inspiration for the modern Olympic Movement.
The Live Arts Festival sits alongside the renowned Wenlock Olympian Games, as competitions in the performing arts are known to have formed part of the original Olympic Games.
On Friday, Mr Fox will attend a celebration event for the Wenlock Olympian Society and is due to meet its President, triple jump world record holder and Olympic gold medallist, Jonathan Edwards CBE.
The Live Arts Festival takes place in Much Wenlock over the weekends 9th/10th and 16th/17th March. Further details can be found on the Wenlock Olympian Society website →
