Help & Useful Info


Newcastle Festival is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. However, items such as professional adjudicators and venue hire need to be paid for and entry fees only partly cover the costs. Please consider making a donation. Become a FRIEND for £15+ or Become a PATRON for £30+ Each time we print a new programme, we list the names of Friends and Patrons who have made donations during the previous 12 months. You will also be sent a free programme, giving you free admission to the next festival. If you wish to Gift Aid your donation...... please use the CONTACT US button to get touch with our treasurer.

Emails have now been sent to all entrants who registered online, giving their class times.

Some classes will have the same start time as they are being combined for their adjudication.

The Graded Piano Class PN 102 has been split into two due to the large number of entries.

PN 102a is for Grade 1 pieces and PN 102b is for Grade 2 pieces.
