Re-recording of featured works will not normally be possible.
5. That it is the responsibility of the composer to ensure that any performance given at a public exhibition-concert is of the highest professional standard. Careful consideration should therefore be given to the choice of performer, if the composer themselves is not to perform the work.

festival organisers retain the right to refuse a work to be included
