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

Trophies from last year can be kept for another year and we'll collect them in next April. 

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




The Committee has been keeping a close eye on developments in the Coronavirus situation.

This year’s Festival is due to start in late May, about two months from now. There is no definitive timescale to the self isolation and social distancing measures announced recently by the Government but it seems generally accepted that they will continue for around 10 - 12 weeks or more. We are also aware that music lessons may be cancelled over the coming weeks. The Committee has therefore, sadly, decided to cancel this year’s Festival. We very much regret any disappointment but assure you that we shall be resuming normal service next year.

A couple of practical points:

If you won a trophy last year, you may keep it until next year.

PayPal entry fees will be refunded via PayPal in the next few days. We will not bank any cheques we have received for postal entries.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and hope that you and your family stay safe and well.

If you have any questions, please contact your section Secretary or the Chairman


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.
