coronavirusIt is with regret that the Committee of the Wharfedale Festival of Performing Arts has had to make the decision that once again to postpone the May Speech and Drama Festival for 2021 due to lockdowns and school closures leaving no time to polish performances so we must look towards the end of the year.

Let us hope that we may experience a more settled 2021. We are planning to be able to run the Festival of Piano in October 2021 providing we are not limited by Covid restrictions. The syllabus will be online by April 1st and we will make a decision about its feasibility by the beginning of July.

Please note that for the first time, there will NOT be a hard copy of the Syllabus available this year, it will only be available as a PDF download.

Please keep checking the website for updates.
