THE Swindon Music Festival is returning later this month.

Performers of all ages can take part and show off their skills in a variety of competitions.

The first event includes the brass, organ, senior vocal, and choir classes and will be held at Christ Church on Friday March 18 from 6.30pm.

From March 19, the festival moves to the Arts Centre for five days - Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Friday and Saturday - with  three daily sessions at 9.30am, 1.30pm and 6.30pm.

Classes cover a whole range of music styles from guitars, woodwind, stings, piano and vocals culminating in the finale on Saturday evening, March 26.

Festival secretary Yvonne Walker siad: "It has always been the festival’s aim to invite the best adjudicators and this year is certainly no exception, so we welcome Adrian Goss, Elizabeth Childs and Rebecca Moseley Morgan.

"We would love to see as many people as possible to come along to as many sessions as they are able. Their support will be greatly appreciated."
