It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our 2021 Festival which was due to take place in the first two weeks of March. 

The continuing uncertainty over communal activities because of the pandemic, and the likelihood that government restrictions will still be in force mean that we simply cannot contemplate a Festival in anything like its usual format.

We realise the disappointment this will mean for our performers, volunteers and audiences and we apologise sincerely for this. The opportunity to perform in front of an audience and receive constructive feedback from a professional adjudicator is so valuable in our development as performers in whatever sphere, and is something our Festival has brought to so many over so many years.

We fully intend to be back in 2022 when the Festival will run from Monday 7 to Saturday 19 March with the Festival Concert on Friday 25 March. We look forward to welcoming all our performers back again.


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.
