Enter the Festival

All participants are encouraged to enter online. Entries can be made from 1st December 2023 to 14th February 2024.

We use the RunMyFestival system for online entries. The links below will take you to the relevant registration pages on the RunMyFestival system. You do not have to complete the entry process in one session, so you could register now and then enter your chosen classes later, for example.


Choosing the correct profile when you log on will help us ensure you are sent the correct attachments when your entry is confirmed. These are the options:
Organisation Profile
for School representatives and teachers entering school pupils
Teacher Profile
for teachers of private pupils
Entrant Profile
for Open Choirs and Entrants aged 16 or over
Parent/Carer Profile
for all other competitors aged 16 or under

Please note: You can see the dates of all sections by Clicking Here. Participants will be informed of the time of their performance by the end of the second week in March
