The Birmingham Music Festival is one of Britain's leading piano competitions.
We welcome entrants of all ages and all abilities from enthusiastic beginners and gifted amateurs to veteran competitors.
We have a fantastic venue: The Ruddock Performing Arts Centre at King Edward’s Schools, the BMF offers high quality grand pianos in both of our performance theatres and adjudicators to match.
We think the Birmingham Music Festival offers the very best in amateur music making.
The 2023 Birmingham Music Festival will take place on
14 and 15 October 2023
The Ruddock Performing Arts Centre at King Edward’s Schools
Edgbaston Park Road
We have received an unprecedented number of entries this year, especially for our junior age classes and so we have had to take the decision to close the festival to entries today.
We're really looking forward to an exciting Festival and seeing you there!
"The object of the Festival is to advance, encourage and foster the art of music making by holding and promoting an annual competitive festival of public performances, recitals and concerts"
