How to Enter

The entry system will operate from the beginning of December until the closing date for entries, which is 1st February, 2024.

Individual performers or groups must enter for the Festival online and to do this you must have an account.  Follow the steps below to set up an account, which can then then be used in successive years.

Schoolteachers entering a large number of performers will be able to use a 2024 Multiple Entries Form.  Payment against invoice can then be arranged.  To request a Multiple Entries Form email:
