Come and Listen
Of course, the festival would not be the same without an audience. If you would like to hear live music played by a huge variety of ages, abilities, instruments, and styles – or if you just want to drop in for a while, we would love to see you. You will also hear illuminating comments from our adjudicators, who are experienced professional musicians – it’s like witnessing a series of master classes!
Admission is only £5, which allows entry to all sessions except the final concert, and school children are free. This year we have introduced a family ticket for £15 which gives admission to parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts etc. supporting an entrant.
Please note that admission is payable by all adults including parents and teachers, but performers and their accompanists are free. This revenue helps us to keep entry fees affordable.
This year we are hoping to welcome all who would like to come, within the capacity of the church, although we may have to limit numbers if more Covid-19 precautions are reintroduced
A full printed souvenir programme will be available this year at a price of £5 (plus £1 postage if you would like it sent to you in advance). You can order it online or by post using the entry form. To order online enter Class 300.
A significant part of our revenue comes from admission tickets. We charge £5 a head, school children free, to come and listen to the classes, one ticket gives entry to all classes. We have introduced a family ticket at £15 which gives admission to parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts etc. supporting an entrant.
