Welcome to the Wharfedale Festival Syllabus for 2019


This will be our 113th Festival in Ilkley and we are delighted to introduce our syllabus for 2019.
 
The Festival gives both adults and children a fantastic opportunity to showcase their skills and talents in the field of Performing Arts. The competition is judged by Federation registered Adjudicators and all entrants receive valuable feedback with a graded certificate and winners are awarded trophies, medals, or prizes.

Our thanks to all our performers, their teachers, relatives and friends of the Festival for their continued support and everyone is welcome to come and watch any of the classes.

Please read the syllabus carefully.
Listening to feedback we have made a few changes to some of the classes, as well as adding some new ones.

We would appeal to all who submit entries that they ensure these are posted in time to arrive on or before the closing date, Friday, 1st March 2019.
Please only use the Official Entry Forms to submit your entries. Late entries may be accepted only at the Festival’s discretion and will incur an administration cost of £2 per entry. Inclusion in the printed programme cannot be guaranteed.
