Welcome to the Home of Highbridge Festival of the Arts

The Festival is affiliated to the Federation of British and International Festivals for Music, Dance and Speech.

The Festival was first held in 1948 at the Highbridge Town Hall. It has grown from an afternoon of performances to a large event held over nine days at the Princess Theatre in Burnham on Sea. In 2012 there were over 1750 performances during the Festival. The Festival welcomes Dancers for four days, Speech and Drama students and performers for two days, Vocalists and Musicians over six days.
All the classes are adjudicated by professional adjudicators who are recognised by the Federation. Marks are awarded using a national scale so performers can compare themselves with festivals nationwide and internationally.

President: Nigel Hess
