Music in the Vale originated in 1985 in the format of free concerts to allow locals to display their various talents.

In 1992 the Vale Council approached the Committee with a request to organise an annual musical competition for the youth of the Vale which was to embrace both singers and instrumentalists. It has evolved to its present format as a competition of significant standing over the years since then.
