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.

Our working title, Perform in Perth, captures the all-encompassing nature of performance opportunities for our competitors in the areas of music, dance and speech.
