The Southport Festival of Music is a charity, founded in 1907, which for 116 years ran a highly successful yearly Festival of adjudicated individual music and drama performances.

From 2023, however, our focus has been redirected to stimulate community interest and participation in musical activities within the Metropolitan Borough Of Sefton. Our initial emphasis is to facilitate inclusive projects for all ages that share the joy of singing. Under this new approach, we are able to reach far more people than was ever possible under the old Festival format which had run its course due to reduced interest in competitive events for individuals.

Our new initiatives have been branded ‘Sing for Sefton’.
