Organisation aims and objectives

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. In 2019, we introduced a series of Gaelic competitions and Baton Twirling competitions, as well as expanding the piping and pipe band drumming solos. In order to organise and run the festival, we use many volunteers.
