Farnham Competitive Music Festival

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


2017 Festival 

We have a payment from October 13th for class St 5 with the name Godet but have no entry in this name. If you have tried to enter online or by post for St 5 then please email jia-doulton@btconnect.com 


Our Festival classes in 2017 will be held on the weekends of the 11th/12th and 18th/19th November. The Festival Concert will be on Sunday 10th December.

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 2016 will be the seventh year of the June Fielding Bursary - value up to £500

We regret that in 2017 we are unable to include classes for choirs as we have insufficient volunteers to support this activity. Vocal ensembles of up to 8 performers will be able to participate.


The closing date for entries is Monday 16th October 2017
