Stage Dance Festival 2016

Geoff Lucas



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!



Thomas Whitham Sixth Form, Burnley Campus,

Barden Lane, Burnley. BB10 1JD

Burnley Campus is slightly out of the town centre. It is easily accessible from the M65 via the A6068.

There is plenty of free parking at the venue. Access for the disabled is directly from the car park. Please phone 01254 822859 prior to the festival to obtain the keypad code.

You will be performing in bright modern classrooms or lecture theatres with raked seating. Our accompanists use digital pianos. The piano provided for performance is a well-maintained Bösendorfer Grand.

The college runs its own refectory serving light snacks throughout the day. There is ample seating both there and elsewhere on the ground floor. A lift and stairs give access to upper performance rooms.

Admission for all days of the festival is £3 for adults per day - under 14s and competitors free. Your guests are very welcome and we do hope you will enjoy listening to other performers when you are not performing yourself.
