2023 Junior Music Festival Newcastle
Instead of being divided into age groups, Junior Music Festivals are divided into sections by the grade/ability of the performer. This means that all participants have a chance to shine and even win prizes, even late beginners. Any recognised Exam board grading system is acceptable.
Trophy prizes are awarded in all sections, with all participants receiving a Certificate of Participation and a report from the adjudicator. Entrants must be aged under 16 years of age as at 31 July 2023. They may enter for more than one venue. (See Terms and Conditions for further details.)
