A Message from the Chairman

Dear Performers, Teachers, Parents and Friends
I am already looking forward to enjoying the wonderful programme of classes and events in the 2015 Festival, and I am delighted that many more of you will be able to purchase a copy of our programme now that we have managed to reduce the cost to just £1.00!
I hope this will also encourage you to attend the Gala Concert in the Kings Theatre on Sunday 29th March at 7pm and perhaps to offer a few hours of your time to help run the Festival as well.
It was with great sadness that we heard in October of the death of Stella Starr who was closely associated with the Festival for many years as a teacher and accompanist. She will be sadly missed.
Once again we warmly welcome our adjudicators and thank them in advance for all their helpful advice and expertise.
Best wishes to everyone taking part and to all the supporters who come to enjoy their performances.
