The Godalming Music Festival has been established since 1947 and has become one of the biggest performing arts events in the region. The festival provides an opportunity for established and aspiring performers of all ages to take part in competitive performances in music, speech, drama, contemporary music and dance.

Held in March each year, the 2017 festival saw a record 3,500 participants take to the stage at venues including schools throughout the local area with judging conducted by specialist adjudicators. The competition culminates in a rousing Festival Concert playing to the general public.

The festival is a registered charity and is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals for Music.

GOLO provided funding (July 2017) towards the cost of establishing a more accessible and usable online resource for entrants and the public to participate in the festival, including entry applications and performance bookings - driven by the ever-growing numbers of entrants.
