What We Do

The Federation has been an incorporated charity since 1921, and we are proud to have Her Majesty The Queen as our patron. For nearly 100 years, we have been supporting community festivals to provide local opportunities for young performers.

We support almost 300 festivals across the UK & Ireland and beyond, including Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Malta, Singapore, Spain and Sri Lanka. Some festivals have a wide range of music, speech and dance classes, whilst others are more specialist. Festivals offer an educational platform for performance, the opportunity to hear the work of others and the chance to receive feedback from a professional adjudicator.

We support the festival movement by providing information, support, advice and essential services to our members including . . .
