Deadline for entries now extended to Thursday 8th February!

The 2024 Festival will take place on Saturday 2nd March and the Festival Concert on Friday 8th March, both at St Aldhelm’s Church and Centre.

The Weymouth and Dorset Music Festival is a non-competitive festival open to all musicians of all ages and abilities. Entrants have the rare opportunity to perform their music in front of an audience – many for the first time – and get feedback from a highly qualified and friendly adjudicator.

The Festival provides a whole day of music, from 9am through to 5.00pm and it would be great to have an audience for our young (and not so young) performers. Members of the public who are not performing are extremely welcome.  We invite them to come along and enjoy a full day of very varied music, from Bach to Bacharach. 

Please come along and support our local music-makers!  Light refreshments will be available.   You can buy a ticket (with free programme) at the door for just £5 per person, or £8 for two people together.  Accompanied children admitted free of charge.

Information about how to enter the festival is available on the “Apply now” page.

We’re running adjudicated classes for…

And this year, to celebrate the Olympic Games in Paris, an exciting new class called “Vive La France”!

Full details of 2024 adjudicators will be available soon.
