You are invited to the AGM on October 13th where you can give your feedback and put your ideas forward. We also need more volunteers to help with planning and administration to secure the future of the festival.

Our Offering

Since 1977 the Wantage Music Festival has been offering amateur musicians of all ages the opportunity to perform in public before a professional who then gives supportive comments aimed at encouraging even better music making.

This Year’s Festival

Reflections on 2022 and our Officers’ reports.

The Future

How relevant is our offering? New classes? New ideas? New events?

Local Musicians

We are proud to welcome performers from a wide area but we have noticed that nowadays fewer people from Wantage, Grove and surrounding areas take part than used to be the case. We’d like to find good ways to reverse this trend, and we’d like to hear from you how we might do this.

Volunteers Urgently Needed

We need people to join our small, friendly committee and help with planning and administration of the Festival for it to continue. There are various tasks required ranging from social media postings, advertising the Festival, seeking sponsorship, arranging concert refreshments and food for adjudicators, secretarial activities, safeguarding and others. If you think you may be able to help in any way, however small, contact us on: or let us know at the meeting.

Financial Support

Sponsors? Advertisers?
