About our Festivals

We run an annual festival which provides an opportunity for amateur musicians of all ages to perform their pieces in a friendly environment and, along with other performers of a similar ability, receive constructive feedback and advice from a specialist adjudicator.

Our programme of competitive and non-competitive classes allows performers of all abilities to take part. There are classes in a wide range of classical and traditional instruments, or combinations of instruments, as well as for singers, choirs, orchestras and bands. Full details are contained in our annual Syllabus, accessible on this website.
If you have participated in our festival before and benefitted from it, please tell your friends and encourage them to participate too. Newcomers are very welcome. More generally, if you have any comments or suggestions about our festival, we would like to hear them: please email us at email@ecfest.org.uk.

You can follow us on our Facebook page and Twitter account.


We are affiliated to the British & International Federation of Festivals, an organisation which represents the interests of the Amateur Festival Movement. To find out more about the Federation, visit their website.
