Welcome to St Austell Festival of Music & Speech

2023 Festival

What’s On When

We are an annual Festival to encourage the study, performance and appreciation of music and speech by affording amateur performers the opportunity of having their performances assessed by highly qualified Adjudicators, and above all, to enjoy performing.

Classes for School-Age

We aim for a fun inclusive Festival, celebrating the developing performance skills in both Music and Speech, in both classes for individuals and groups.

Classes for All Types of Instrument

We run classes for voice (spoken word and singing), strings, percussion, brass, woodwind, accordion, piano, electronic keyboards…. and if you can’t find the class you want, you can always ask for one!

Classes for Adults

We offer open classes for both individuals and groups ranging from small ensembles to choirs.

Classes for Everyone

From beginners to advanced performers, there is a class for every amateur!



Founded in 1948, we offer the chance to perform in a supportive environment
