The Leith Hill Musical Festival has been held annually in Dorking, Surrey since 1905 and has grown into one of the country's leading choral events.

From the beginning, and for nearly 50 years, the Festival Conductor was the world famous composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The present Festival Conductor, since 1996, is the Sony award winning BBC radio presenter and former King's singer Brian Kay.
