We welcome participants of all ages !

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.
