Welcome to the Website for our 2017 Festival
We are fortunate this year in being supported by Exeter City Council and the Joanna Leach Foundation.
The 2016 Festival is now over, but please see our page about Special Events – a concert at Sidholme and a piano masterclass at Blundells School, Tiverton.
We hope you will find this website easy to use – if you experience any problems, do contact our Web Editor (webeditdpaforguk) .
Like other festivals who are members of BIFFMDS, we provide the opportunity to perform your chosen performing art before an audience and a highly skilled and experienced Adjudicator. Most classes may be entered competitively, but non-competitive entries are welcomed too. Many classes have trophies for the winners.
More details of the festival are available under About on the menu above.
You will find full details of the festival on this web site, which we hope you will find easy to use. Pages all have a Printer Friendly version which will just provide the information in the centre of the page, for printing.
You can enter online by finding a class (either from the pages linked from the menu on the left), or by using the search facility – see the menu above – then pressing the button. There is also a multiple-entry form. Further information about entering is available here.
Our Festival is held at two venues in Exeter: South Street Baptist Church and Southernhay United Reformed Church – for more information see Our Venues.
Our primary source of information is this web site, where entries may also be submitted, but if you wish, printed versions of our syllabus and an entry form are available, and you can submit entries on paper, by post with a cheque if you prefer. Details are here.
