Festival membership

If you are starting, or running a festival of amateur performing arts (music, dance, speech or any combination of these) which will provide educational feedback through the advice of Federation adjudicators then contact us for information on how to take an application forward.  Please note that we do not offer training courses in how to run a festival.

Friends membership

People who feel the festival movement makes a valuable contribution to artistic lives are welcome to apply to become a Friend of the Federation. The annual membership subscription for a Friend of the Federation is £50.00. We will use your subscription to continue our valuable work to help educational arts festivals both locally and internationally, and keep you in the loop with our activities.
