THERE is still time to get involved with what looks set to be the biggest Oswestry Youth Music Festival yet.

Prospective performers have until January 18 to sign up for the event, which will be held from Wednesday, February 27 to Sunday, March 3.

Organiser Sue Turner said that the 2019 syllabus was "bigger than ever", thanks to new syllabus for 2019 which is bigger than ever, increasing numbers of performers and new exhibition classes.

Oswestry Music Festival dates back to the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1977.

It attracts entrants from Shropshire, Cheshire, Wrexham and throughout north and mid Wales.

The festival includes a programme of individual, group and school opportunities linked with celebrity concerts.

Trophies, certificates and prizes are awarded to competitors and past overall winners of the festival have gone on to successful professional musical careers.

Competitions take place at the Methodist Church, Christchurch and Holy Trinity Church.

All entries should arrive at the Guildhall no later than 1pm on January 18.
