Festival venues for 2023 To be confirmed

With great regret, we are sad to announce that our 2022 festival has been cancelled.

The committee made the decision in the light present circumstances.

We will be planning for a successful Feb/March festival in 2023 with adjudicators already booked.

Notice to Trophy Holders

Dear Trophy Holder,

I am sorry to inform you that after much thought it has been decided not to hold the Festival next year.2022

Considering that some restrictions are still in place, singers and instrumentalists may still not be receiving tuition, and the situation in schools may not be clear for some time.

To this end, we are asking you to retain the trophies you hold for another year.

If this is not possible, may I ask that you contact Alison or myself to arrange their return.

Yours sincerely,

Keith Downie

Trophy secretary
