The Southend Musical Festival is an annual competitive festival of music and drama, founded in 1911. The festival runs every day for a fortnight in November, and has classes for all ages and abilities in the following sections:
* WOODWIND & BRASS
* SPEECH & DRAMA
Anyone is welcome to come along and watch the competitions – there are usually three 3-hour sessions a day.
Admission for a nominal fee (£2.50 for a session, or £5.00 all day) will give you access to some wonderful entertainment, and provide a much-needed audience for our performers.
