Every night a different programme of very varied one-act plays presented by theatre groups from all over the area and beyond.  New writing rubs shoulders with famous classics.  Lots to talk about!  Our guest expert will sum up the week and hand out certificates and silverware after the final play on Saturday night.

Tickets cost just £3 per evening or £10 for a bargain festival ticket covering all  5 evenings. Tickets can be purchased at the theatre bar or just come along and pay on the night. (Seats are not reserved)

Aims and rules of the festival can be seen here.
