If you are a teacher in the performing arts we would like to encourage you to enter your pupils in the Musical Festival. There are Classes in Dancing, Singing, Speech, Drama and Mime, and many different Instruments for all age groups and at all levels. Entrants will also enjoy and be inspired by other performances and benefit from advice given by adjudicators to other entrants.

Performing in the Festival offers the opportunity to get up on a real stage in front of an audience and see how it feels. Entrants also receive detailed verbal and written feedback about their performance and tips on how to improve.

If you would like to know more about entering pupils in a particular Section, please contact the Section Secretary who would be delighted to help.

If you would like to contribute your ideas to the Festival we would be happy to hear from you.

We use an on-line entry system. You can enter details of all your pupils online without having to fill in reams of paper forms, and payment can be made online too.


We would also love to know what you think about the Festival and how we can make it better every year. Perhaps you would like to contribute.

Are there classes you would like to see that we don’t currently offer? Are some classes no longer relevant to your students?
