We present a week-long run of 6 plays each season, together with visiting productions, music and a lively social club.

The Partington Theatre Annual One-Act Play Festival takes place at the end of our season, in early July, and attracts a wide variety of entries from near and far away. All amateur groups are very welcome; adult and junior,  schools and colleges, established drama societies or groups of friends rehearsing in someone’s front room. Entries have ranged from premières of brand-new writing to excerpts from Shakespeare. You name it! If you might be interested in entering the 2019 festival please email
