As a Festival we are determined to overcome the restrictions that deprive

our performers of the opportunity to showcase their exceptional talents so we are introducing these special alternative performance opportunities.

 

The entry deadline for classes has been extended to January 27th.

 

Our usual Festival standards will apply with performances judged by professional adjudicators and comment sheets for each performance emailed to participants.

 

Performances, gaining Distinction and above, will be invited to feature on the Festival website and our YouTube channel
