We are Inverness Festival Association- a small charity run entirely by volunteers.
We love to bring Inverness tour annual festival, which brings together people of all ages in a shared love of performance.
Our motto is 'Performance for Everybody'. It doesnt matter who you are, what age, what stage, we are sure we have something which will interest you- either as a performer, as an audience, or as part of our volunteer community.
We have workshops and non-competitive sharing events. We also have lots of popular competitive classes. We have plenty of feedback on hand from experienced adjudicators.
Taking part in performance activities develops confidence and presentation skills and helps with relaxation, recreation, and positive mental health for people of all ages. Choirs and groups give people the chance to socialise and interact. And of course, in the Highlands we have a wealth of local culture to celebrate. We believe it is important we try to continue to our centenary and beyond.
Like everyone else, this year we are facing unprecedented challenges. We have a very difficult financial situation, and it is far from certain if we will be able to proceed in 2021 with our usual event. However, if we are unable to go ahead, we lose our revenue completely, and there is a serious risk that the charity will be unable to move forward. We don't want to be another event that is lost to the Coronavirus pandemic!
We know these are difficult times, but please can you help? Just a small donation of from many people would make a big difference to us. Or maybe you are a business in a position to offer a larger sponsorship.
