This should be a live festival and all entries are welcome. We believe that it is important that every competitor should have an equal opportunity to perform their piece/pieces on the same (Steinway Grand) piano so that the outcome is balanced and fair.

Nearer the time, should the festival have to be cancelled a full refund will be given. Entry to the venue remains at £3.00 per adult, on each of the three days and programmes will be free. Audience numbers might need to be restricted during performances and at the concert to comply with Government guidelines.

Winners' Concert

A concert will be held in the McGuinness Music School on Saturday 30th April at 7.00pm where invited class winners will have another opportunity to perform their winning piece, on the Steinway Grand Piano.

Trophies awarded at the discretion of the Adjudicator will be presented at the end of the evening.

Entry is free but donations are always welcome!

The Piano Festival is hosted by Salesian College Farnborough.

The McGuinness Music School offers the perfect ambience for our Festival and we are grateful to have the use of their Steinway Grand Piano as well as the printing of our syllabus and programmes.

Salesian College is an independent Catholic Grammar School for boys from 11 to 16 with a co-educational Sixth Form. Founded in 1901 it has a well-deserved reputation for excellence in academic, cultural, physical and all-round achievement.
