The Leith Hill Musical Festival was founded in Dorking by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1905. The LHMF Committee in its first annual report described the aim of the Festival as 'being primarily to encourage the love and study of good music in villages 10 miles of Leith Hill'. A hundred years later members of Shalford Choral Society, a competitor in the very first Festival held in 1905, describe the event as 'great fun, exhilarating, challenging, wonderful, social, daunting, highlight of the year' - sentiments which still support the original aim of the Festival. 

The Festival is one of England's leading choral events, involving eminent musicians, and is an opportunity to sing with a professional orchestra. We are privileged, as amateurs, to sing under the baton of the charismatic, pleasant and patient Brian Kay, with superb soloists and a professional orchestra.
