We are now accepting entries for 2022 for all sections except Harp and Speech & Drama. Entry for these sections will be available soon.

Our 2021 online Festival was a great success with many outstanding performances. We will build on this success in 2022 with our return to mostly live competitions.

Performance Opportunity

The North London Festival has a link with the Royal Orchestral Society – www.royalorchestralsociety.org.uk – which is celebrating its 150th anniversary season in 2022/2023. As part of that celebration, there will be a ‘Rising Talent’ evening in the Duke’s Hall of the Royal Academy of Music, at 6 pm on Sunday 16th October 2022. This concert will feature performances with the orchestra by talented young and upcoming soloists and will be followed by a reception with the ROS’s Patron Judith Weir, Master of the Queen’s Music.

ROS will offer one or two of these performance opportunities to recent winners of the Festival’s elite competitions. You can still be eligible to take advantage of this opportunity by entering one of this year’s elite competitions.


Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition – we will not be running this competition in 2022

As, during 2021, few music festivals have been able to take place, we have decided not to run the Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition in 2022. Any pianists who would normally be nominated for the 2022 competition will instead be eligible to be nominated for the 2023 competition. If you are the secretary of a festival that usually nominates entrants for the Emanuel Competition and have any questions, please contact Janice Twiselton – admin@northlondonfestival.org.uk.
