In March each year, pupils of all ages participate in instrumental and choral workshop activities which culminate in a series of festival concerts at the Central Theatre in Chatham.
The first day of the March Festival involves workshops and performances from a variety of young instrumentalists including a recorder ensemble made up of approximately 200 players from various primary schools across Medway.
The remaining four days of the March Festival (Tuesday - Friday) involve choral activities for over 2350 pupils in KS1 and KS2. On each day, approximately 400 pupils take part in massed singing and then each school choir also perform their own song on the stage.
Past festivals have also included performances from a ukulele ensemble, The Medway Schools Wind Band and The Medway Schools Training Wind Band.
