If an alternative performer is indeed secured, a new Performance Contract must be completed and signed by them.

All performance content must be suitable for all members of an average family. Any inappropriate content will be reported to the Festival. A warning or suspension of performance may be issued at that time. If unsuitable content is continued all members of the performance group may be suspended from future Festivals.
