Friends of Burnley Festival

Burnley Festival of

Speech, Music & Stage Dance







Lots of people help us with the Festival by giving their time and expertise to help something happen that they believe in. Could you be one of them?  We need help through the year developing the Festival to meet the needs of today’s performers and of course we need hands-on help on the days of the Festival itself.

We currently have a vacancy for someone to help us with publicity for our Festival, but whatever your area of expertise and interest from drama, music anddance to secretarial, management, fund-raising and IT skills, you can be sure we would welcome your involvement to the extent you wished to give it.

Vaguely interested?  Please come along to one of our Festival events and make yourself known at the Festival Office. Alternatively  email us and we will  be in touch.

The Burnley Festival Team look forward to hearing from you!


Would you like to support our Festival but are unable to physically help us?

Did you know that you can become a FRIEND of the Festival for as little as £10-00 per annum?

The Festival Friends can enjoy visits to any of the Festival events-( four days of dance and a day each of music-making and speech and drama, plus our exciting choral competition)-free of charge.

You can meet the young stars of tomorrow, today. Over the years you will see them progress and develop their skills.

Please think about it. Our Festival is entirely run by volunteers who give their time for free. We receive no public grants. Perhaps you can help us with your donation? If so please email  us. The Secretary to the Friends Association will contact you with more information.
