The Future of the Music Section  ‘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 ...’ Held Early March.
