Beckenham Festival is one of the largest amateur competitive performing arts festivals in the south-east of England.
There are around 400 classes in Music, Dancing and Speech & Drama, with specialist adjudicators in all sections. As well as certificates and medals there are 135 cups, trophies, and awards to be won. A “Musician of the Year” competition is held on the final Sunday, and the Festival acts as a qualifying heat for the All-England Dance Competition.
IMPORTANT: For safety reasons, we will only be running solo music classes in 2021. Choirs, duets, and other group classes will not run in 2021.
In 2021 the Festival will be held at
Langley Park School for Boys, Beckenham
Marian Vian Primary School, Beckenham
Classes will take place on weekends in October and November, and we will follow all UK government safety guidelines in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic.
