Message from our Chairman

As you are aware last year’s festival was hit by the weather leading to the postponement of part of the festival and the concert. This has had considerable impact on the festival’s finances and we are very grateful to both Derek Hasted and Melanie Mastrototaro for their fundraising concerts which have helped greatly in reducing our deficit.

As part of our commitment to the future of the festival we are moving our on-line payment to Worldpay which will allow you to pay at point of entry.
This should help the festival finances. Paper entries can still pay by cheque of course.

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.
The Festival 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.

Shelagh Lee  Chairman
