Worksop Music Festival is held in March every year, culminating in an award ceremony and prize winners concert featuring some of the best performances from all sections.
Originally called The North Notts Music Competitions, Worksop Music and Drama Festival was founded in 1904 “for the continuation of good music and brightening of village life”. It served the area of North Nottinghamshire known as The Dukeries, and continues to attract entrants from this area and beyond, including Sheffield, Doncaster, Nottingham, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.
The 2024 festival will be held on Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th, Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March 2024 (Sunday dependent on number of entries) with the Winners Concert being held on Friday 26th April at 7.00pm.
There are a variety of classes which can be entered, including solo and ensemble, instrumental and vocal. This year there will also be some special classes to celebrate the Festival’s 120th anniversary. Please see www.worksopmusicfestival.co.uk for more details and to enrol for any classes you wish to enter. Entries must be in by 26th January 2024.
