This Festival is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals and participates in its Group Licence, to cover payment of fees for the use of recorded music at its events. Teachers using tapes created from commercial recordings are advised that they should seek permission to re-record, from the record companies concerned, as the Wharfedale Festival cannot take responsibility for this arrangement.

All performances using music from shows in current production are subject to copyright laws.

Where movement or costume are included in a performance, copyright permission is required and the Wharfedale Festival Committee accepts these entries on the basis that the appropriate copyright permission has been granted.

Performers or teachers with queries on how to obtain copyright permission for performance items, should contact Festivals House on 0906 1302 (calls cost a maximum of 50p per minute) before making their entries.
