Welcome to our 108th festival and all that we can offer you in 2019.

The festival gives you an opportunity to showcase your talents and provides a platform to present your musical skills, where you will receive help and advice from an experienced adjudicator. This year the adjudicator is London-based Eileen Field who comes highly recommended.

Wansbeck Music Festival is a charity run by volunteers who are friendly and helpful. Classes such as strings, harps, brass, percussion, piano, steel pans, vocal and ensemble work are on offer.

In 2019 there will be some new classes and there will be more non-competitive classes on offer.

Please browse the syllabus and if anything interests you please come and join us in 2019. Spread the news to your friends. You will find it rewarding and enjoyable to perform together and appreciate each other's talents.
