Celebrating our centenary year in 2022, we have over 300 classes in Music and Dancing, with specialist adjudicators in both sections. As well as certificates and medals there are 135 cups, trophies, and awards to be won. A “Musician of the Year” event is held on the last weekend of our Festival, and the Dance section acts as a qualifying heat for the All-England Dance Competition.


Here are the 2021 Prizewinners.

In 2022 the Festival will be held at

  • Langley Park School for Boys, Beckenham

  • Marian Vian Primary School, Beckenham

  • St George's Church, Beckenham

Classes will take place on weekends in October and November.
