Thank you for your patience in awaiting the opening of entries for the 2011 festival. These are now live, and you can enter your groups here.
Please note that entries close on the 8th of July. It is also extremely important that you read the rules thoroughly to avoid any disappointment or unpleasant surprises.
The fringe section of the festival will be run a little differently this year. In previous years the Fringe Festival has occurred on the final day of the festival. In 2011, it will be incorporated in the main festival schedule in order to benefit from the larger audiences and opportunities to watch experienced groups in their category. Directors should enter their Fringe groups in the same way as any other ensemble but must select the Festival Box box under “entry level”. Please be aware that competitive ensembles will be given first priority for performance slots. Second priority will be given to schools who are only entering non-competitive groups.
The stage plans are still being ammended to reflect the new performance space. I will let you all know via email when these are ready. Please fill them in for your groups and bring them with the copies of your scores to the festival. You do not need to post them in advance.
Kind regards, Sally-Ann Russell
