About Spring Grove Music Festival

The Spring Grove Music Festival is a young person’s music competition based in Hampstead, North London. It takes place at Spring Grove Care Home and was conceived as a form of entertainment and recreation for the elderly residents. The Festival began in 2005 and has been providing enjoyment to the residents of Spring Grove and the general public ever since.

Spring Grove musiciansThe Festival attracts student participants from local schools and music centres and extends its reach across London. In recent years, performers have joined from a variety of schools, including Highgate School, UCS, Camden School for Girls, Hampstead School and St. Paul’s School as well as local music centres such as the Youth Music Centre.

Performers compete for prizes in their respective age groups, with winners receiving engraved trophies and cash prizes of £250.

It’s not all about the winning though! Above all, The Spring Grove Music Festival celebrates giving back to the local community. We have an ethos of openness and encourage applications from musicians of all standards. Most importantly, we want to give young musicians the chance to perform and the drive to produce something special.

How it works

The Festival takes place over 5-6 weekends in the Winter Term. Candidates compete in categories and are separated into appropriate age groups. The highest-scoring candidates over all heats are then invited to compete in the finals.
