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.
Piano solos for those under 19 years of age. We aim to hold the these classes on the Friday evening with a risk that those for the more senior age groups may have to be rescheduled to Saturday subject to the number of entries taken. Winners' trophies will be held for one year.
