Festival Details

Bowdon Youth Festival


From small beginnings in 2013, Bowdon Festival has grown into a major arts event in Trafford and North Cheshire. We are a registered charity and are run entirely by volunteers.

Our principal activity is Bowdon Youth Festival, held on the first weekend of February each year.

The Bowdon Youth Festival provides an opportunity for young people still at school to perform music, speech and drama, supported by eminent and experienced Adjudicators and Accompanists. In a supportive environment, young people can experience solo and group public performance, building confidence and expertise in their chosen area. We provide classes in Voice, Strings, Piano, Organ, Woodwind and Brass, Speech, Drama and for Choirs.
