We are now accepting entries to our 2020 Festival.  Entries for all classes, including Dance, can be placed through our on-line entry system.  We much prefer that entries be made on-line as there are significant benefits both for the entrant and the Festival. However, paper entries will still be accepted for Music and Speech classes only.

The closing date for postal entries (Music and Speech) is Sunday 10 November 2019.  Closing date for on-line entries (all classes) is Sunday 1 December 2019.
