Welcome to Horsham Performers Platform

Horsham Performers Platform is an annual local adjudicated music festival providing a great opportunity for musicians of all ages to perform in a friendly environment, in front of an audience, and to receive feedback and advice from distinguished professional musicians.    

The adjudicator takes the stage after every few performances to provide encouraging and constructive feedback. HPP’s emphasis is on education and performance, not competition, so there are no trophies, but all performers receive a certificate for participating.

HPP 2024!

HPP returns in the week beginning Monday 17th June, with events scheduled the whole week except Wednesday - see “Festival Dates for 2024”. As in previous years, the venue is St John’s Church in Broadbridge Heath. 

We’re continuing with the successful format of the festivals in 2022 and 2023: each session is a mini-concert, programmed to include solos, duets and ensembles, and to last between 75 and 90 minutes including the adjudications and presentation of certificates. 

Make an entry for HPP 2024 here.

The closing date for entries has now passed.


This year’s festival is generously supported by The Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust.
