The festival is a series of competitions for AMATEUR vocalists, choirs and instrumentalists as well as verse speakers, trainees in reading for performance, acting, mime and improvisation.
 
We want to make our Festival attractive to all and to make the "set pieces" appropriate and more exciting to individuals, to be more 21st century, and to encourage participation.
 
The aim of our festival is to encourage and promote a high standard in the performing arts, including vocals, instrumental music and speech.
 
We provide a platform for amateur performers of all ages and abilities, in a friendly but competitive atmosphere.
 
Our festival is often the first platform for many future professionals - 80% of performers competing nationally are under 18 years.
