Welcome to the Website for our 2020 Festival

Monday March 9th 2020 – Friday 20th March 2020. Gala Concert Saturday 21st March, 2.30pm

Coronavirus: Update

The Piano Section on Thursday 19th March is cancelled.

We have made this decision with great regret, in the light of the latest government guidelines.

This has been a difficult decision to make, and we know that many people will be disappointed, but we feel it is the wisest course of action.

We will be in touch with those affected  in due course.

Nevertheless, we managed, despite various difficulties, to run the Speech & Drama, Singing and Instrumental Music Sections, which were very successful, and we are looking forward to next year’s festival, when we hope things will be back to normal.
