When I lived in the area there were festivals in Leicester and Nottingham. That's over 20 years ago so may not exist any more. Round here, which isn't really Midlands but as near to you as Cheltenham, there's one at Chipping Norton.

Can't answer for Nottingham but Leicester is still going strong. Some of my singing teacher's other pupils regularly come back with trophies.

Since the mentioned range is wide I may as well add the Oxford Music Festival.

Deadline mid-October, runs last weekend of Jan and 1st weekend of Feb.
