How to enter

2023 Syllabus:  The syllabus will not be produced in hard copy this year.  There will be a pdf available for download from the website.

The 2023 MiniFest syllabus is live. 

After a call for volunteers we received many offers of support, but no-one available to take over responsibiity for key postitions in the charity.  Consequently only sectionswhich are supported are being run this year.

There are a very few tweaks to the syllabus.  Please read the syllabus carefully, along with the regulations, and make sure you have selected the appropriate class(es) for your age and skill level. 
N.B. Performances which do not meet the correct criteria will receive an adjudication, but will be considered non-competitive.
