Welcome to the website of the Farnham Competitive Music Festival, held at Frensham Heights School, Rowledge, Farnham. We also have a Facebook page with photos and news


2018 Festival - our 40th year



Our Festival classes in 2018 will be held on the weekends of the 10th/11th (strings and wwodwind and brass) and 17th/18th November (piano and singing). The Festival Concert date is not yet fixed.

We strive to provide classes and awards which are of real value to musicians at all stages of development.

  • For younger entrants, the Play2 class is aimed at providing a transition before they are ready to give a full recital programme.
  • For the more advanced player, the piano section Performers' Platform is the ideal preparation for exams and auditions.
  • We are delighted to announce that 2018 will be the eighth year of the June Fielding Bursary - value up to £500
