CLOSING DATE FOR 2022 ENTRIES IS 19TH JANUARY

You might be forgiven for thinking we have been here before but unlike 2021 we feel confident that we shall be able to hold a live festival this year. We are, of course, conscious that we must abide by government directives and the safety of our performers, audience and volunteers must take precedence but circumstances are different. With a largely vaccinated population and sensible precautions in place we are hopeful that we can celebrate the performing arts together in March. It may well look different and some classes may go online but we are very keen to get as much live as we possibly can.

With that in mind we would encourage you to make your entries as usual with a guarantee of a full refund should your classes not go ahead.  The closing date for entries is Wednesday 19th January.
We will be as flexible as we can be throughout this process. We will post regular bulletins on the website or you could sign up to our mailing list by clicking the link below. If you want to discuss anything specific please contact the entry sec for your discipline who will be happy to help.

It might be a bumpy ride through January but the hope is that we will sail into calmer waters by February and be able to see the shape and form of Festival 2022
