Exciting News - 4th July 2015

In light of having three Stage Spectaculars this year and this being the Eisteddfod’s 90th year, the Committee has decided to run all sections on 4/7/15 at The Capital.  As a committee we are very excited – although a little nervous as running the competitions at The Capital has not been done before!

We feel all competitors will enjoy performing at The Capital and the experience for the audience will also be improved!

Tickets for the Stage Spec Evening are scheduled to go on sale on through The Capital on Tuesday 23/6/15 – Adults $12.00 and Children under 16 - $8.00. As you can see prices have been kept to a minimum and we will be reliant on a large audience attendance to assist in the hiring of the venue. Please encourage all that you can - to attend!  Season passes are not valid on stage spec evening but will be valid at The Capital for the morning and afternoon sessions.  Please note – start time 4/7/15 is 8.30 am and competitors can bump into The Capital from 7.30 am onwards.

Bendigo Comps selected for Local Matters at Grill'd

We’ve been selected to participate in Local Matters at Grill’d Bendigo this June!

Local Matters is the Grill’d community donation program that sees each Grill’d restaurant donate $500 back into the community every month. The donation is split between 3 local community groups $300 / $100 / $100.


We’d love your support in receiving the highest $300 donation! Simply head to Grill’d Bendigo during June, for a burger and pop your Local Matters token in our jar. The group with the most tokens at the end of the month receives the largest donation.

It’s a simple (and delicious) way to show your support!

You’ll find us on a jar at Grill’d Bendigo, 88 Pall Mall, corner of Bull Street Bendigo.

Planning Underway for 2015 Comp!

The planning for Bendigo’s 90th Annual Eisteddfod is well underway and we are pleased to advise that the  Eisteddfod will again be held at the Bendigo South East College Theatre in Ellis Street, Bendigo.  This exciting move which we made last year has been a great success and the fabulous co-operation we receive from the School Principal and Staff of the Performing Arts campus is greatly appreciated. The  Competition Society and the Secondary College will again be working together to enhance  this important annual event on the Bendigo Arts calendar.

We are pleased to advise that "The Foundry Invitational Dance Championship" will again be held as the Culminating event of the Dance Competition. This event will feature prize winners from various sections and age groups in the Dance program and will provide great entertainment and a night not to be missed!  The Date and Time will be announced when the Dance timetable has been finalized. We appreciate the ongoing support of the The Foundry Hotel Community Fund.

The Schedule of events is close to being finalized and will be posted on this website by late December. The First weekend of Comps will be on 2nd & 3rd of May and Dance will be during the July School holidays.

We have a few personnel changes for this year with Phil Spark taking on the role of Secretary as well as Volunteer Coordinator (Phil would love to hear from anyone who could assist as a volunteer during the 2015 Eisteddfod).  David Hague is picking up the job of Music Coordinator  in addition to Treasurer.

Directions to our New Venue!

Once again, the Bendigo Competitions Society will hold the annual eisteddfod at the  Bendigo South East College Theatre in Ellis Street, Bendigo. This exciting move, initiated in 2014, has been made in collaboration with Bendigo South East College and together the Society and the Secondary College will be working towards enhancing this important annual event on the Bendigo Arts calendar.


The Bendigo Competitions Society Inc. is an organization run by volunteers and is dedicated to supporting the performing arts. Our members and friends give generously of their time to help and encourage young performers.

Our Annual Competitions currently run for more than nine weeks each year covering thirteen artistic disciplines and providing over 3,500 on-stage performances for artists from all over Australia. There are presently ten committee members who organize this annual event and they are assisted by many volunteers who willingly help as scribes, ushers, ticket sellers, trophy designers, chair-people, backstage organisers, booking-in personnel, canteen workers etc. In recent times there has been a shortage of volunteers – if you would like to assist, please contact the Music or Dance Coordinator.

Thanks to sponsor partner Trend Logic, who have just released a brand-new online entries system, now entitled Stardom (previously GENI), to assist in running our competitions.   This site provides our valued competitors with an easy to use method for placing and paying for their entry.

The Bendigo Competitions Society Inc. depends heavily on volunteers. Each three-hour session requires the equivalent of thirty hours of voluntary input. We have sixty sessions overall, requiring 1800 hours of voluntary manpower. We appreciate you taking the time to read this and hope that you will support our work by becoming a volunteer. Please contact the Music or Dance Coordinator if you are able to assist.

Your Help will make a Difference..!

The Society is a not-for-profit organisation. The charges to compete cover only a portion of the costs. When you purchase your admission ticket you make it possible for the Society to continue providing the annual competitions. We also rely on the canteen to cover production costs and appreciate your patronage. We admit competitors without charge to every session and provide children’s tickets at substantially reduced prices.

We are very grateful for additional funding that comes from sponsors, donations, the City of Greater Bendigo, Bendigo IT and individuals. The search for additional financial support becomes increasingly difficult. New sponsors and supporters would be welcomed and truly appreciated.

Come along, sit back and enjoy the parade of wonderful talent presented to us by the youth of Australia as they strive for excellence in their chosen discipline, at the same time providing us with wonderful entertainment. We trust you will enjoy your time with us and encourage others to become part of our audiences supporting and encouraging our competitors.
