A message from the Chairman

I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making last year’s Festival such an outstanding success.  Despite the difficulties of working with the COVID pandemic, we managed to achieve our first ever virtual, on-line Festival.

There were over 520 entries, much higher than expected, with high entries for piano and strings.

We were disappointed not to have the choirs, and not to be able to host a prize winners’ concert, but pleased that we have a set of good quality videos, a selection of which you can enjoy on our website.

Can I thank all the entrants, their teachers and parents, the adjudicators, our sponsors and advertisers, and all our volunteer helpers who adapted so well to changed circumstances.

Now we are all looking forward to our 2021 live Festival!
