NOW, for those of you feeling the NEED To PERFORM

here’s something NEW.

We are creating a virtual performance platform on this website for anyone who wishes to post a Music, Dance, or Drama video.  Please read the following and send your video as an email attachment to: video@cfopa.org

We will do our best to show every video we receive, but there may be technical limitations that we are yet unaware of.  We do guarantee, however, to maintain close control of the process and will remove any video, either at the sender’s request, or for legal reasons.

Only the performing child’s parent (or guardian) may give permission for a video of a child to be shown.  No information may be included in the video except the performing child’s name and age.  By sending a performance video to the above email address, the child’s parent gives permission for the video to be shown to the public in accordance with current legislation.




Anyone interested in becoming involved with running the Festival is most welcome to contact us.  In particular, we are looking for someone to lead our fund-raising effort in the role of Festival Development Executive.  This is a senior level role which will help to guide the organisation’s direction for the next few years.  Do make contact if you feel that you would like to join our team.  It’s so worthwhile – we do make a difference to the young people who perform.

If you would like to know more about helping to run the Festival, contact Brian Harding (Hon Secretary) by email: brianharding17@btinternet.com, or call 07850 153183.
