From small beginnings in 2013, Bowdon Festival has grown into a major arts event in Trafford and North Cheshire. We are a registered charity and are run entirely by volunteers.
Our principal activity is Bowdon Youth Festival, held on the first weekend of February each year.
“Congratulations! I have received great feedback from parents and children. The Festival is just going from strength to strength.”
The Bowdon Youth Festival provides an opportunity for young people still at school to perform music, speech and drama, supported by eminent and experienced Adjudicators and Accompanists. In a supportive environment, young people can experience solo and group public performance, building confidence and expertise in their chosen area. We provide classes in Voice, Strings, Piano, Organ, Woodwind and Brass, Speech, Drama and for Choirs.
During the year, we present a series of fundraising events, such as concerts. These are run by our wonderful band of volunteers and, together with the support of our patrons and sponsors, enable us to present the Bowdon Youth Festival.
We also enjoy and very much appreciate the ongoing support of the PCC of St Mary’s Bowdon. The Church has a long history of service to the local community and manifests its support for the arts locally through its support of Bowdon Festival.
