2021 Festival Update

The difficult decision has been made to postpone the Dance Section of the Festival in February 2021, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and social restrictions.

It is early days at the moment to know whether the other sections of the festival can run in June 2021. We will be preparing a reduced online syllabus in the Spring and the decision to proceed or not will be taken nearer the time. 




Don't worry about trying to return a trophy in these days of isolation and social distancing. 

Trophies from last year can be kept over Christmas and we'll collect them in January 2021. 

Enjoy and don't forget to polish them !!!


Sadly our Piano Secretary, Marina Kusnetsova is now standing down after 5 years in the role.

She has spent a lot of time and effort in building the section into an amazing 4 days of great music making so a big thankyou to her. 


We are now looking for a new Piano Secretary so if you feel you could help in any way please contact our chair, Laurie Grove at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
