After waiting for over 24 months, another exciting Eisteddfod Season is about to begin! Come along and see the most outstanding, young talent in the SW.
The WA Performing Arts Eisteddfod (WAPAE) is a performing arts competition first held in Bunbury since 1914 and held annually since 1958. The 2020 eisteddfod was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, but plans are in place to hold the 2021 event. Every year the Eisteddfod brings increased visitors to the region; generating income and promoting active community participation during the quieter winter period. Approximately 13,000 people pass through Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre (BREC) during the season, and can be involved on many levels as performers, supporters, volunteers, audience member, and committee members.
Performers of all ages, gender and abilities experience the rare opportunity of performing on stage in a professional theatre. They can demonstrate their skills, be recognised amongst their peers and community, and be encouraged to pursue their goals and dreams. An increasing number of the high-school participants go on to study at the West Australia Academy of Performing Arts and continue to forge careers in the performing arts arena.
