Manx Music Festival
The Manx Music Festival (or to give it its full title - The Manx Competitive Music, Speech and Dance Festival) is colloquially known as 'The Guild'. The Festival was founded in 1892 initally as a choir competition and grew to include solo, drama and dance classes over its history. It now takes place over a 9 day period from the end of April and weclomes over 2,000 competitors each year.
The Festival's purpose is to foster, develop and promote in the Isle of Man the performing arts of music, dance and speech in all its forms and to provide competitions in those performing arts.
The Festival culminates in the Cleveland Medal Contest where the winners of the Special Solo classes compete for the Cleveland (Ohio, USA) Manx Society Medal.
The next Manx Music Festival will take place from 24th April to 2nd May 2015.
