The Worcester Competitive Arts Festival (WCAF) is the perfect opportunity to test your skills in music or drama. Thousands of budding musicians and actors have entered classes in the 67-year distinguished history of the 'Friendly Festival'. So in 2020, why not test your own nerve and performance ability in a nurturing and supportive environment, in the wonderful city of Worcester? Prizes, awards and a festival concert are all on offer to those who dare!


If you have won a trophy in the 2019 Festival

please would you return it, in the packaging provided, to the Festival by the end of January 2020. It would also be greatly appreciated if you could make sure

the trophy is returned cleaned. Thank you.

"The WCAF has become a very important part of Bengeworth Academy's calendar, and pupils love everything about it. The excitement is electric every year and even those who didn't manage to win a medal want to take part next year, which is what its all about, isn't it."

Debra Bertulis - Bengeworth Academy

“Thank you so much for inviting me to adjudicate at your friendly and successful festival and please pass on my gratitude to all concerned. My two desk clerks looked after me beautifully. I had a lovely day and the Festival must be proud of all its enthusiastic entrants.”
