About the Festival

A Drama Festival is a unique experience and Maidenhead is one of the top festivals in the country, attracting a wide selection of plays and performing groups from the local area.

Every Spring around 12 one-act plays are performed in front of an esteemed professional adjudicator and you – the audience.

The plays are between 20 and 55 minutes long, ranging from comedies to thrillers to highly-emotional dramas. Each one is critiqued by the adjudicator in front of the audience for acting, direction, stage presentation and dramatic achievement. The winners are announced on Saturday night, with the Overall Winner going through to the Quarter Final of the All England Theatre Festival.

You can come along and watch all of the plays or just a few – it’s completely up to you.
