Our Recital and Winners Concert
The 2016 Recital and Winners Concert will be held on Sunday 13 March. This will include some winners of the ten recital classes and other invited participants. So keep this date free, as you could find yourself competing for the Recital and/or the Bircham Festival Musician of the Year Award; both of these attract a prize of £100 and the opportunity to perform later in the year at Proms in the Pews and possibly Great Yarmouth Arts Festival.
