2023 Hastings Musical Festival

Hastings Musical Festival will be held from Sunday March 5th 2023 through to Sunday March 19th at The White Rock Hotel in Hastings.

Entries open on 1st September 2022 and close on 30th November 2022

Hastings Musical Festival takes place at the White Rock Theatre each year. Dancers, singers, musicians and actors of all ages perform in classes which are marked by an adjudicator who is a specialist and an expert in the field. Feedback is given to everyone and the winners of each class are announced. In many classes a trophy is also awarded and in the junior classes we are also awarding first, second and third festival awards.  If you enter the Festival over a number of years and then wish to go on to study at a college or university on a course for performing arts you can apply for a grant from the Festival. You may also be eligible for the Molly Townson Bursary - given to one entrant each year - of £3,000.  On top of that you may also gain an award from The Foster Trust to help towards your studies.
