Adjudicator: William McElwee.

Thank you to everyone who entered the festival this year. Your wonderful performances delighted the audience, and our adjudicator William McElwee. Many thanks also to whānau and friends who came to support the players. We also thank our sponsors – Pelorus Trust, Trust House, and Porirua City Creative Communities. Without their funding, we would not be able to hold the festival.
