A Competitive Festival of Music, Speech & Drama

WELCOME to the Home page of the PONTEFRACT MUSIC FESTIVAL. We hope you will find something to interest you, and maybe even inspire you to join us, you would be made very welcome.

About Us:
Now in its 113th year the Pontefract Music Festival offers the children and adults of the town and surrounding districts the opportunity to develop a whole range of performance skills.

The Festival’s challenge to those taking part is to encourage the ideals of dedication, determination and confidence, and give competitors the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.

In return the Festival offers professional adjudication with dedicated feedback to enhance and encourage competitor’s further development of performance skills.

“To learn to lose without feeling defeated is a sign of maturity”.

Since December 2014
