Welcome

The 2020 Festival will run from Monday 2nd March to Friday 3rd April and from Thursday 16th April to Monday 25th May. The syllabus files for the individual sections have now been loaded to the website and we are able to accept entries. To request a printed syllabus, please email admin@northlondonfestival.org.uk

The closing date for the wind and string sections of the festival has now passed. We may still be able to accept entries, but please contact the section secretary before applying.

From the separate pages for the sections of the festival you can download the section syllabuses and enter online. In many cases  competition numbers are different from the numbers used in previous years, so take care when applying that you are applying for the correct competition.

We have relaunched our wind, brass and guitar sections, extended our chamber music and ensemble offerings, reinvigorated our choir competitions, have more non-competitive ‘classes’ and are offering more performance opportunities to prize-winners. Look out for an impressive line up of adjudicators.

We warmly welcome audience members at all our competitions. To hear news of the festival, sign up to our mailing list either by using the box in the webpage footer or by emailing enquiriesnlf@outlook.com and letting us know which areas of the festival you are interested in.
