Why become a Friend of the Festival?

We are a charity and rely on class entry fees to cover the cost of venue hire, adjudicator fees and syllabus/programme material. The donations of Friends help us to defray some of these crucial expenses.

How do I become a Friend of the Festival?

Simply send a cheque. £25 transforms you into a Friend of the Festival. Or if you prefer you may donate a sum of your own choosing.

Is that all there is to do?

There is a form you can fill in to make matters easier. Go to Syllabus > Syllabus Download > Friends of the Festival, complete the short remittance form and send it with your donation to: Alan Cantor, 509 Clifton Drive North, St Annes, Lancs, FY8 2QX.

And finally…

THANK YOU – because you have just made a valuable contribution to the future of this wonderful festival and all the performers who benefit from it.

The Organising Team would like to thank the following organisations for their generous donations towards the continued success of the Festival.
