How to Enter

The Festival is open to all established Amateur Dramatic Societies and schools/colleges’ Drama Departments in the local area. We are especially proud of the number of high quality entries we receive each year from youth groups. (Schools for the performing arts are not eligible to enter the competitive element of the Festival. They can however perform at the Festival and receive an adjudication.)

It was with a sad heart that the Committee met yesterday and agreed that we had no option but to cancel the Festival. Co-incidental with us coming to that conclusion Norden Farm advised us that they were closing the venue for the next 3 weeks at least.

We are sorry that it has come to this, but the health and safety of all is of the utmost importance.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and stay safe during these difficult times.
