The 81st Welwyn Drama Festival

18th – 23rd May 2015

A wonderful week of entertaining, dramatic competition.

We are really excited to be welcoming the Welwyn Drama Festival for the very first time.

It’s their 81st year and they provide a wonderful week of entertaining, dramatic competition.

There are two or three short (one-act) plays each night. Teams must adhere to the festival rules and will be awarded marks by a professional adjudicator for acting, production, stage presentation and dramatic achievement. The winning team is awarded the prestigious Welwyn Cup, and the chance to perform at the British All-Winners Festival. The other awards presented on the final night include an Audience Appreciation Award, voted for by those who purchased one of the great-value Festival Season Tickets.
