Last minute opportunities for 2024

Last minute opportunities for 2024

Our main entry deadline for the May 2024 Oratory Festival was Monday 8 April 2024. However, don’t despair if you still want to enter! This page has all the answers for late entries …

Entering as a group

Schools and clubs can email or to fill in our online form up until the end of April, and we’ll do our best to schedule your own special group session where each entry costs £10 (£5 less than our individual rate), with a minimum cost per session of £100. For institutions wanting to make over 20 entries, we can work with you to arrange an additional discount.

Waiting list for individual entries

If you’re looking to enter as an individual, please sign up for our waiting list below (ideally by Friday 19 April) and we’ll do our very best to find a slot to accommodate your entries.
Do take a look at our syllabus before deciding which categories to enter, and feel free to enter as many as possible at our standard rate of £15 per entry. You can also email us at, but please make sure you include all the information requested in the form below.

If we don’t have any places this year, we’ll add you to our mailing list so that you are notified as soon as online entry opens for the next Festival.
