The Guildhall is a very busy public and working building. We regret that we cannot offer practice facilities to AFYM performers.


AFYM does not provide an official accompanist. Listed below are pianists who may be available. Please make EARLY contact with an accompanist if you do not have your own, to make sure that you can be accommodated, particularly with difficult pieces, which the pianist will need to practise. Any arrangement made between you and the accompanist is a private one, not involving the Festival. You are advised to check with accompanists that music you mail to them has been received.
