Competitor Info Pack ~ Read Carefully. Tuesday 11 August 2020

Please read this page carefully as it contains all the information required for the next online piano festival. We will answer all queries about the event in an update to this page on Monday 10 August at midday so check back at this time if you have a query that you have emailed but not received an answer.

We do not refund or reschedule any tickets if you are unable to attend the event as we have already donated all profits to our chosen charity (see donation on our Justgiving page).


We have raised £175 for Westminster House Youth Club (WHYC) so thank you for entering this event and raising vital funds for the club that works with the vulnerable youth of Peckham.
