How do Friends help the Festival?

The Festival is a registered charity, run by an elected committee of volunteers who give their time freely but the cost of putting on the festival, hire of premises, hire of a high quality grand piano, fees for professional adjudicators, printing etc. are constantly growing. The costs are funded, in part, by the money from entry fees and entrance tickets. To supplement this, the success of the Festival is also dependent on sponsorship, grants and the generosity of the Friends. The support of the Friends, both practically and financially, is therefore crucial to ensure the continuance of this fine, long-standing Festival and the fulfilment of its aims.
