Festival competitions take place through the spring and early summer, and we always need help in organising and running the Festival.

Volunteer Helpers and Stewards

If you would like to help this community work, let us know. Every little bit of help is invaluable and there is no joining fee for helping! If you would be interested in stewarding for one of the festival days, please contact the relevant section organiser directly. Please note that we will require references, and we will need you to follow procedures related to our child protection policy.


The festival is run by a committee of voluntary organisers. We have section organisers for each section, plus officers whose work provides the umbrella for the festival.

We urgently need to recruit new members to the committee, which is smaller than we would like. There are roles waiting to be filled.

You do not have to be an expert in any area of music and dance, or speech and drama, to help. What is needed is a willingness to support the aims of the festival, and some organisational skills. We are a friendly festival and each section supports the other sections. Many of our helpers offer time to more than one section, but we are a small team, and would like to be a larger one. If you are able to help us, or would like to have a chat about what may be involved please contact the secretary.
