Parking is limited on site however there is parking on the surrounding streets - allow plenty of time to find a car park as it is a residential area. 

Upon arriving at the Festival we will listen to other schools perform and then move to a warm-up room prior to our performance on stage. All parents are invited to enter the auditorium to listen to other groups while they wait for our school to perform.

Once the students have performed, they will be ushered backstage to collect their instrument cases. All students and parents/friends are invited to remain for the adjudication which will take place at the end of the section. If you cannot remain behind for the adjudication you are free to leave once your child is dismissed by their Music Director
