Welcome to the Abingdon Music Festival!

“A festival with a difference – not a competition but a workshop”

The 20th Abingdon Music Festival will run from Friday 28th April to Sunday 30th April 2017 at St Helen & St Katharine school in Abingdon.

Abingdon Music Festival caters for all ages, abilities and instruments.

We regularly receive comments that this is a really friendly and informative festival; to those of you who may be new to it, its “difference” means that after every performance, in whatever category, an adjudicator of the highest calibre will give instant comments and helpful advice. Audiences appreciate hearing these assessments immediately instead of having to wait until the end of the class, and performers really enjoy the chance to work on their pieces with an experienced adjudicator.

The only element of competition is that each adjudicator is invited to select items for the final Sunday evening concert.
