A celebration of music, song, speech and drama

We are now accepting entries for the 2018 festival.

The Heaton Mersey Youth Festival consists of the following sections:

Please could all trophies awarded in the 2017 festival be returned by January 2018 to 3 Gibsons Road, Heaton Moor, Stockport, SK4 4JX. 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.
