    You are encouraged to send information about concerts and recitals to the webmaster for inclusion in the calendar. We are dependent on you for this information.
    Other events like competitions, festivals, Eisteddfodau, lectures, workshops, auditions, master classes, conventions, symposia and the like are not shown on the calendars but feature under the appropriate heading on the landing page in date sequence. Even after the closing date for entries has passed the event is still shown until it has actually taken place. Sometimes some of these events are also put in the calendar.
