A celebration of music, song, speech and drama

Saturday 5th, Friday 11th and Saturday 12th March 2016

The Heaton Mersey Youth Festival consists of the following sections:

Saturday 5th March: Strings and Piano
Friday 11th March: Choral
Saturday 12th March: Instrumental, Vocal, and Speech & Drama

The entry date for the festival has now passed.

Please could all trophies awarded in the 2015 festival be returned to Alligator Music, Stockport. Contact us if you need to make alternative arrangements.

The principal aim of the festival is to provide a public platform for performance in a friendly, relaxed yet competitive environment, to develop personal confidence whilst striving for success.

Equally important, all candidates know they will receive expert, unbiased and independent criticism of their efforts from carefully chosen, first class adjudicators who will ensure the maintenance of high standards.

HMYF owns over 200 cups and trophies, which are presented to our winners along with certificates and festival medals.

We now encourage all entries to be made online. Create a user account in order to make entries. Payment remains to be by cheque or bank transfer, we are not yet able to accept online payments, and information about how to pay will be provided in the checkout process. For any assistance with making entries, please contact us.
