The committee has decided, with sadness,  that it will not be possible to run the Music Festival in 2021, given the uncertainties around the covid 19 pandemic. We look forward to having an extra-special Festival in 2022.



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.

Please come along and support our local music-makers!  Light refreshments will be available.  Programmes can be ordered in advance, online, at a discount price, until 6th March – go to the “Apply Now” page for further details.  You can buy a family ticket at the door for £10.

We’re running adjudicated classes for…
