We are very disappointed to announce that the Festival Concert planned for Friday 20 March will not now take place in view of the current situation. 

The concert normally brings together performers, many of whom are at school, and families, friends and our patrons, many of whom are elderly, and we do not feel it would be wise to proceed given the risks of infection.

We really are sorry, as we had some absolutely magical performances lined up. We look forward to better times in 2021.

The 2021 Festival will begin on Monday 1 March

We always need new volunteers to help run this wonderful festival.
Come and join us!  If you would like to help, please see our Volunteers page.


Lincoln Music and Drama Festival is held in the first two weeks of March each year. 

It is a competitive Festival for children and adults of all ages, groups or individuals from schools or private entries. All are welcome. 

Professional, world-renowned adjudicators are engaged who provide friendly, helpful and constructive criticism. They provide a written critique of each performance and make awards of certificates and trophies.

The Festival also awards residential Bursaries for both Music and Drama.

We encourage and welcome audiences. Follow the links for more information.
