Details of accompanists available can be obtained by emailing the Cornwall Music Festival on chaircornwallmusicfestivalrmf@gmail.com

No rehearsal or changing rooms will be available. For the sake of equitability in competitive classes, teachers may not use any part of the premises for coaching or rehearsal.

Neither the Festival nor the Church Council takes any responsibility for loss or damage to personal possessions.

7 Gala Concert

Performers selected to take part in the final Gala Concert at 7 pm on Saturday evening 19th March 2022 will be expected to attend. They may perform only the items used during the Festival week, unless the piece exceeds 5 minutes in which case they will need to select a shorter alternative agreed with the concert organiser.

8 Complimentary tickets

Schools bringing large numbers of children (choirs/choral verse/bands/orchestras) may qualify for complimentary tickets for adults who help to supervise the children. In addition to conductors and accompanists, for whom there is no charge, one complimentary ticket per ten pupils will be issued for adult supervisors. (e.g. 30 pupils = 3 complimentary tickets). All other spectators will be expected to purchase a ticket.

9 Data protection

The Data Protection Act which became law on 25 May 2018 provides greater security for individuals in terms of personal data. Data held is solely for the purpose of running the Festival and personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without express consent.

There are now two Park & Ride sites: at Langarth to the west and on the A390 to the east of the city, but the service stops at 7 pm.
