Woking Music Festival

safeguardingPlease go to our new website.


The annual competitive Woking Music Festival, held in November, is a celebration of the musical and literary vitality of Woking and the surrounding area. The Festival welcomes people of all ages and abilities, who can derive and give pleasure in participating, whatever their tastes or performing standard.

Founded by Nancy Leigh in 1926, the Festival is now one of the largest of its kind in Surrey with more than 1,000 people taking part each year. Respected teachers and performers act as adjudicators, giving valuable advice and guidance to all participants.

In early February, it organises the Young Musician of the Year competition with performers from the main festival being invited to participate.

We are grateful to the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust and Handel Pianos for their support.

Please complete the form on the "Mailing list" page (link on the left) if you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive information about the Festival.

If you normally receive information from the Woking Music Festival but haven't done so this year, it may be because we don't have a record of having received your permission to contact you since the introduction of GDPR. If you think this might be the case, please either contact the Festival or use the "Mailing list" link on the left.


The committee will obviously be keeping the situation under review, but is currently making plans for the festival to go ahead as normally as possible in November since it would be premature to cancel it at this stage. As circumstances change, we will post updates on the website and ask you to check it for developments and further information.
