Welcome to the Wansbeck Music Festival 2018.

I hope you’ll find something to interest you, to inspire you, to challenge you and to encourage you to join us for our 2018 festival.

Please take time to consider if you or someone you know would be interested in taking part. The benefits include:

  • invaluable performing experience before an appreciative audience
  • receiving the judgement of professionals
  • seeing and hearing others taking part.

Wansbeck Music Festival is a charity run by volunteers, giving local musicians of all ages the opportunity to take part in a celebration of music.

New for this year – you can apply online.

To make entry to classes easier we are adopting the Run My Festival system, developed specifically for festivals. It provides secure online entry and payment. To access the online system follow the Enter Classes Online link. Note that you can still apply using the entry form in the syllabus booklet or on this website.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in 2018.

Christine Ramm
