Woking Music Festival

safeguardingThe annual competitive Woking Music Festival, held in November, is a celebration of the musical and literary vitality of Woking and the surrounding area. The Festival welcomes people of all ages and abilities, who can derive and give pleasure in participating, whatever their tastes or performing standard.

Founded by Nancy Leigh in 1926, the Festival is now one of the largest of its kind in Surrey with more than 1,000 people taking part each year. Respected teachers and performers act as adjudicators, giving valuable advice and guidance to all participants.

In early February, it organises the Young Musician of the Year competition with performers from the main festival being invited to participate.

We are grateful to the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust and Handel Pianos for their support.

It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of our President, Peter Readings, on 19th January. His association with the Woking Music Festival goes back to 1956 and his contribution to it and to the careers of many musicians who took part in it is incalculable. An appreciation of his life can be read by clicking on the link to the left.
