About the Watford Festival

The Watford Festival was established over 60 years ago and has grown from strength to strength to become one of the largest and most respected in the UK. It aims to encourage people of all ages to perform in the areas of Music, Speech and Drama by providing an opportunity to perform before an adjudicator and an audience.

The Festival is held in February and March every year. It is a competitive festival and there are classes for both children and adults available. Classes are divided into the following sections: ChoralVocalPianoforteStringsCarnaticWoodwind & BrassComposition and Speech & Drama.

The Festival receives over 1,800 entries every year, involving at least 2,000 participants. It offers a unique opportunity for these performers to experience performing in front of an audience and to receive expert advice and encouragement.
