The Festival committee sadly has to announce that the Festival will not be going ahead this year, due to the restrictions in place due to Covid-19. We had hoped that the situation may change in time for the autumn, but it is now clear that this is not going to be the case and we would not be able to run the Festival. We are sorry for the disappointment this may cause our supporters and competitors, who have been busy practising at home at this time, but we look forward to welcoming you back next year.
The closing date for entries to the music section of the 2017 Festival is 16th September – only 8 days away, so enter online now so you don’t miss out!
Here is your one week reminder! The closing date for music entries is 17th September 2016, which is one week away. Don’t forget to get your entry in before the deadline.
Good news for pianists: a new cup was generously donated to the Festival last year for French music. It is called the Le Riche Cup for Best Performance of French Piano Music. So, if you have a nice piece of Debussy, Fauré or maybe some Saint-Saëns, then enter one of our French Music Classes and you could win our new cup!
