How to enter for the Festival
To enter for the Festival, all we need is some basic information about who's playing, which instrument they are performing on, what music they plan to play and we will take care of the rest.

Any questions, or things we might need to clarify, will be taken care of by our team.

You will find the various forms available on our downloads page and you can fill these in at any time, as long as you make sure that we have them back by the closing date for entries, which this year is the
22nd January 2017.

PS - if you're reading this just after, or too close to the submission date and you would like to enter but you think you might have missed the opportunity, don't worry. Please do not hesitate to contact us . We will try and accommodate late entries wherever possible
On the Day(s) of the Festival
Once you decide which class, or classes, to enter, then
all you need to do is make sure you arrive at the correct
venue in good time for your performance slot, with your
music, instrument, accompanist (if you need one) and all your family and/or friends who want to come and enjoy the performances of you and your fellow musicians on the day.

We provide practice rooms at each venue for you to warm up, if you wish. The only thing to make sure of is that you arrive in good time before the session which contains your class begins,
which can sometimes be a little before your actual designated class start time.

This means we don't have people coming and going during, or in between performances, which can be off-putting for performer and audience alike.
