Festival News



The 2018 Syllabus is now available in the shops and libraries around the island. Schools have been sent their own copies and they are also obtainable from the Secretary. 

The Syllabus has been restructured to make it easier to find the rules and classes you are looking for. 

A new Folk Woodwind class has been introduced and we have revamped some of the other classes to encourage entries. 

Please note that the dates and times in the programme are provisional and may need to be changed depending on the numbers of competitors in each class. 

Thank you for your entries. Enjoy your practicing!
