Get Involved

Cymryd Rhan

We would love more people to get involved with the 30th anniversary project, we are looking for people who would like to share the heritage of MusicFest in a number of ways including showing people around the exhibition, interviewing people about the memories and contacting people who have taken part in MusicFest as well as sharing information about the exhibition through a number of platforms including social media. If you are interested in being involved then contact

Most importantly we want people to get involved by sharing their memories or memorabilia. If you want to find out how to do this then look at the section on Memory Post. During the festival from 22nd – 29th July staff will be available at the Arts Centre to record/interview anyone who wishes to share a memory.

Of course the best way to get involved is to come along – see a performance, go on a story walk, listen to a talk, see a student showcase, attend a masterclass – there is a wealth of special offers available, all of the Fringe events, student showcases, talks and masterclasses are free. There will also be free tickets for classical music performances available daily.
