It's set to be a great celebration year and we have another fabulous adjudicator this year again. Hoping to hear from you all soon.Regards Anne Marie Mc Closkey
Name: Ballymena Centenary Festival 2016 Syllabus launch
Ballymena Festival organisers are delighted to announce the launch of their 2016 Centenary Festival syllabus. To celebrate the centenary of the Festival they have commissioned copies of the original Ballymena Musical Festival Association medals, first issued in 1916. These have been copied in gold, silver and bronze and will be used this year only as prize winners’ badges.

Ballymena Festival organisers are also delighted to announce that every performer/group will receive a specially designed certificate to commemorate their participation in this Festival. The certificates have been sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Please visit the festival website to download the syllabus or to view it in e-book form.

Entries close on 15th January 2016. Ballymena Festival organisers would advise early application of entries in this very special year.

Hi everyone, it's great that so many of you are getting your entries in before the closing date on Friday - thank you so much for that. For anyone who hasn't entered yet hopefully this is a gentle reminder. A few people may also have to check with their teachers to make sure their entries are in and paid for either through paypal or a cheque. Please remember that  entries on the day are NOT accepted.
It promises to be another great competition this year, all being well.
As ever if you need anymore help please contact me either by email or 07595279093

Hi everyone-hope you are all well. Can't believe its that time of the year again. Just dropping you all a little reminder about Ballymena Festival Traditional Day. If you go to Ballymena Festival homepage you can find out all the information. A number of people are already getting their entries completed(sometimes its easier to get it done before Christmas) Please don't hold back on entries thinking you'll be the first to enter, as all entries are electronically jumbled before the programme is made out. Entries this year, like last year, will be online and no entries will be accepted on the day.Thank you as always for your support and may I wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Regards, Anne Marie Mc Closkey.
