Welcome to Slough Arts Festival

Our Bursary Contestants, Trophy and Award Winners 2019

Slough Arts Festival is now in its 8th decade which is a magnificent achievement due in no small part to the wonderful contribution from our numerous supporters – competitors, teachers, friends, families and volunteers – which has sustained it and carried it forward over the years.  This year we are delighted once again to see all our old friends returning and we extend a warm welcome to our new competitors.  We hope you all enjoy our festival.

Zara Scott - Bursary Winner 2018

Hi Lynn

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the £300 bursary for Zara which went into my bank account this morning. This is excellent timing as Zara has just been accepted onto a Vaganova “Masters of Ballet” summer school at Sadlers Wells in August! We are planning to put some of the money towards this, some to buy a new pair of pointe shoes and Zara has chosen a pair of warm up booties for a personal present for herself.

Good Afternoon

I thought you might like to know how Kieran used the Bursary award he received from you last year and what he has achieved during the last 12 months. We split the money between 2 summer schools, Urdang College and Bird College.
