2021 Virtual Festival

During the 2021 COVID lockdown year our Festival became a virtual one - one of the most successful events of its kind in the UK.

Competititors recorded their entries on video and these were compiled into classes and sessions; adjudicators added their remarks. All performances and adjudications were then streamed in a series of virtual livestream sessions - 32 in all. Full details are available in the event programme - available here.

Welcome to
Perform in Perth


Perform in Perth is an annual festival of music, speech and dance. Each year around 2,800 performers take part in the two week festival which runs in March.

There are events for groups of almost any size and description, in addition to an extensive programme for solo performance.

Performers have the opportunity to develop their skills through receiving advice and encouragement from a team of experienced professional adjudicators.

The working title, Perform in Perth, was introduced in autumn 2003 along with a new logo, which can be seen on our Home Page. This captures the all-encompassing nature of performance opportunities for our competitors in the areas of music, dance and speech.
