OUR 2021 ONLINE COMPETITIONS ARE LIVE!
Building on the success of our harp and one-minute monologue competitions in 2020, our 2021 Festival will be fully online. We are excited to have created specially designed competitions for choirs, composition, harp, piano, strings and speech and drama.
The closing date for all classes is Friday 16th April.
We understand that towards the end of March it may be possible for string players to meet in person with an accompanist. We moved the string closing date to give people the chance to record their entry with a live accompanist.
Look at our Strings Page for details of the prizes that you can win.
Entries will only be accepted from people living or studying in the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
For the 2021 Festival, the date on which we calculate a person’s age is 1st September 2020, so that all entrants in the same school year are in the same class.
The dates of Festival events may change without notice. Please check this website for details.
We have a new system for entries, powered by Play and Perform, which applies to all classes except the Emanuel Trophy Prize Competition *. Please click on the link below for how to apply and for hints on creating an effective video performance. The first time that you use the new entry system, you will need to register. Entrants must also upload copies of the music.
* The Emanuel Trophy Prize Competition will be online, but you cannot enter online. Please contact the Piano Section Secretary, Janice Twiselton, firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for an entry form. You should return your entry to her. All entries must be received by Friday 16th April.

MEMORIES OF THE FESTIVAL
The festival started in November 1920 and Rosemary Cook has started writing a history of the Festival. She would be delighted to hear from anyone who has memories of the Festival and especially musicians who took part in the Festival as children.
The Members of the North London Festival participate in the Festival’s most important decisions and perform a crucial role in holding the Executive to account. The Festival is actively seeking new Members, whether they simply attend the AGM once a year and vote, or can contribute ideas, contacts, and active support. A modest annual subscription is payable. This entitles you to free entry to all Festival competitions.
