Shine! is a mixture of the traditional and contemporary with both competitive and non-competitive classes. This Festival is not so much a new idea, but a fresh look on a tradition that continues to thrive in other areas across the country and even internationally ... The Tees Valley has seen a strong tradition of competitive music festivals over the past 60 years, notably Stockton Music and Drama festival and Middlesbrough Music Festival, both of which have disbanded in the past 5 years. With financial support from a variety of individuals and organisations it has been possible to re-invent this new festival which will serve musicians across the whole Tees Valley.‘ Held Late April - Early May.
