Welcome to the L.J.C.C. website, last updated on 17 December 2014.

Results from 13 and 14 December are here.

Online entry to the finals and to the associated adult events is available. Click here.

Late fees - please note that the late fee (£10) for events on 28 to 30 December is payable if we don't receive your payment by 23 December. Sending or emailing the entry without a fee does not confirm the entry so you would have to pay the late fee if you choose to pay after 23 December. On the day payments are subject to an extra fee of £15. The easiest way to pay is online - if you have already entered without paying you can duplicate your entry online and then just send us an email to alert us to the fact.
