Festival 2021 


These are challenging times for many people and not least for those involved in performing arts. At the moment, we can’t be certain it will be possible to hold a festival in March 2021, but we are resolved to do everything we can to make performance opportunities available for everyone who is able to take part. We are working hard to plan and organise the 2021 Festival and, in conjunction with our venues, for it to be held in a safe and compliant environment.
We know we’re not able to offer all of the usual classes. Unfortunately, there are no classes for choirs, but singers can enter the full range of solo and duet classes. In addition, younger singers can try out the new ‘Share a Song’ class. For instrumentalists, there is the full range of solo and small ensemble classes but sadly no classes for orchestras and bands. Most Speech and Drama events are retained, and all Scottish Country Dancing classes are included as usual.
As we approach the time of the Festival, we will keep arrangements under review and inform you if any plans need to change. Meantime, please submit entries. We have made special arrangements for the 2021 Festival so we can refund entry fees in full should events be cancelled.
