Return of Cups and Trophies

The Festival awards a number of cups and trophies. These are all aggregate awards, and usually the winner cannot be decided until the last day. All cups will therefore be presented after the finale on the last day. If a dancer feels they have a good chance of winning, but cannot attend on the last day, it would be helpful if they could delegate someone from their school who will be present to be prepared to accept the cup on their behalf.

Cup winners will be asked to sign a receipt for their cup before they can take it away.

All Cups and Trophies must be returned by 1st March 2018.

Please have your cup or trophy engraved and ensure it is cleaned before you return it. If a cup requires an addition (for example, a metal plate) to allow room for more names to be engraved then the Festival will reimburse you for the extra work on production of a receipt.

Please do not ask if you can return cups during the Festival itself. We need to organise them for presentation well in advance of the Festival.

The Festival Committee regret that if a trophy is not returned by this date, or is lost or damaged, then they reserve the right to charge the recipient for repair of that damage. The Committee also reserve the right to withhold presentation of further trophies to competitors who have not returned those they hold from the previous year.

Cups and trophies should be returned to:
