Due to the current global challenges surrounding Coronavirus, all plans for the 2021 Competition will be subject to change, depending on the current circumstances and government guidelines.

Our International First Round will take place ‘virtually’ around the world in April – to read more about our plans and how we are trying to protect our musicians, Jury and staff, please read our latest Press Release Jan.2021.

We have every hope of welcoming everyone to our 20th Competition LIVE in Leeds in September 2021!

Further details and information will be added to this disclaimer page and when updates are available.
