Chairman’s Letter 2017

It gives me great pleasure to introduce our Festival Syllabus for the coming year. We would like to thank the staff of Queen Mary's College in Basingstoke for once again allowing us to use their premises for our festival which will take place over three consecutive weekends in March 2017.
This year entrants with the highest mark in each of our main sections will be presented with an overall award at our Gala Concert and Award Ceremony which will be held in May. This concert will feature performances from award winners and other high scorers.
Known as the 'friendly festival' we offer a very warm welcome to entrants of all ages. I would like to thank all our participants and supporters who help to make our Festival such a success each year and I look forward to meeting you in March 2017.

Marilyn Wright
Hon. Chairman
