The Aldershot and Farnborough Festival is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance and Speech of which Her late Majesty the Queen was Patron. This makes us part of an organisation of over 300 festivals, with around 1 million amateur performers and an audience of 5 million.
The Festival's objectives are to promote excellence in the performing arts at all levels and to encourage the participation of the people of Rushmoor, of all ages and abilities.
Trained and experienced Adjudicators of the British Federation not only grade the performance, but also – most importantly – give an expert critique that is always helpful and encouraging.
The Festival is organised into distinct sections, held at different venues and dates.
