Ruislip-Northwood Festival Association


I and some of my wonderful family and voluntary helpers have been involved with the Ruislip-Northwood Festival Music Section since 2001. We have very much enjoyed meeting adjudicators, teachers, competitors and parents and hearing from time to time some outstanding performances.
We hope that the Section may continue for many years to come. However we are constantly seeking fresh helpers and in due course (perhaps as soon as 2019) we shall need a new Section Secretary.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in running the Section or helping with administration or at the venue on Festival days, please contact me.
Tasks include:

Before the Festival:

Booking adjudicators and venue
Receiving entries and entering these on the computer database
Organising and recording entry fee payments
Working out the timetable
Sending notifications to teachers and competitors
Printing report sheets and certificates
Compiling and printing the programme
Keeping track of trophies awarded and getting them back on time

At the Festival (Section Secretary and helpers)

Selling entrance tickets and programmes
Acting as clerk to the Adjudicator
Preparing lunches and selling refreshments
Planning the Prize winners' Concert
Dealing with queries, complaints etc

After the Festival (Section Secretary)

Calculating income and expenditure
Reporting to the Festival Committee

We have all enjoyed our involvement with the Music Section over the past seventeen years and should be extremely sad if it were obliged to close for lack of a Section Secretary and/or helpers.
