The New Milton Music Festival is held annually in New Milton, a town on the South Coast of England, close to the New Forest. The festival gives musicians and vocalists in the area, both adults and children, the opportunity to take part in competitive classes, leading to a Gala Concert. Classes are professionally invigilated with the aim of encouraging participants, as well as awarding medals and trophies to winners and making recommendations for the Gala Concert.

The festival is non-profit making and is run by volunteers. Competitor fees are kept as low as possible and local schools are encouraged to enter pupils.

If you live in the area and have some musical ability, why not enter the next festival? And if you enjoy listening to local musical talent, do come for the Gala Concert - see you there!
