5 Rehearsal rooms
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.
6 Personal possessions
Neither the Festival nor the Church Council takes any responsibility for loss or damage to personal possessions.
7 Closing Concert
IN 2024, Performers may be invited to take part in the Closing Concert at 7.00pm on Saturday 16th March 2024 . The Closing Concert will consist of performers drawn from the week that represent the breadth and variety of Festival Week. It may or may not include winners from the various classes.
We ask that when participants have accepted the invitation to take part they 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.
The Festival’s use of the premises of Truro Methodist Church does not extend to the car park. No parking will normally be available on the Church premises. Long-stay and short stay car parking is available in public car parks. 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.
