The SELMF was founded in 1882, making it the UK’s oldest music and drama festival. It has continued to grow in popularity since that time, with entries in 2014 reaching over 1,000 in over 200 classes.
Many musicians and actors can trace the start of their careers from success at the SELMF. These include Jonathan Antoine, (of Charlotte and Jonathan fame) and Charlotte Barbour-Condini who reached the final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2012.
The Festival runs for two weeks in February.
