Welcome to Godalming Performing Arts Festival which also includes Music, Dance, Musical Theatre and Speech & Drama.
Usually the Festival has around 300 classes to cater for all ages and all levels of ability. Most classes are competitive, with marks awarded by an adjudicator. However, most music sections also have non-competitive classes. Having seen the performances the adjudicator comments on them before awarding marks and then writes a short report on each performance which is presented at the end of each class. The Festival is divided into Sections each of which is run by a Secretary dealing with entries and enquiries.
The 2022 Festival will be held in February/March. At the moment we have Secretaries for Dance, Musical Theatre, Speech and Drama, Organ, and Wind Solos and Ensembles, so those Sections will be running. The Sections without the guiding hand of a Secretary (Singing, Strings, Piano, School Choirs, Adult Choirs and Contemporary) will sadly not be operating in 2022. In addition, we are at the moment without a Festival Director to guide the whole organisation. If you are interested in helping us by filling one of these vacant positions, please contact us through the “contact us” page of this website.
