The last two Festivals (2020 and 2021) had to be cancelled owing to Covid restrictions. The organisers are hopeful that 2022 will be able to take place in as near-normal a way as possible, but much can happen before April, with winter intervening. The Covid measures that need to be put in place will be decided nearer the time and will follow government advice. However, anyone attending the Festival should be aware that there may be limitations on the catering available, changing facilities and numbers allowed in the auditorium at any one time. Any special Covid measures will be posted on the website and e-mailed in March 2022 to schools who have entered.

If the Festival has to be cancelled all schools will have their entry fees refunded in full.

By entering the Festival schools agree to abide by whatever Covid biosecurity measures are deemed to be appropriate by the organisers.
