A Message from the Chairman

Festival 2016

Welcome to our latest Syllabus. 

Following the success of our non-competitive classes we are pleased to be offering a wide range of opportunities again this year for all ages and standards of entrants.  

Each year we listen carefully to any recommendations by entrants, to make sure we are providing a Festival that meets their needs and, if necessary, evaluate and make changes. This year has seen some significant changes to School Choirs to allow as many choirs from every type of school to participate. Please read all class details carefully before entering your choir. 

Festivals such as ours take a great deal of organising and would not happen without the work of our dedicated section administrators, committee members and volunteers who give freely of their time to make sure this event happens. Over the past couple of years the website has made entry much simpler and we are always updating the information on this to make it easier for you to keep in touch with us.  

Once again thank you to everyone who has supported the Festival over the years. I know that with everyone’s enthusiasm for this amazing event and your continued support and help, we can look forward knowing that future generations will gain as much enjoyment from the Festival as we have.
