Totton Festival of Drama 2019

Enter our 2019 Festival

The Totton Festival may mark its 41st festival in 2019 but that doesn’t mean we are resting on our laurels. The festival team are working hard to make sure that all competing groups can put on their best possible production and really enjoy their festival experience - and in the Hanger Farm Arts Centre, you have perfect intimate space in which to perform. (View the stage layout)

As always, our one act play festival is open to all amateur drama groups, schools and colleges and we always love welcoming new groups to the festival as well as welcoming back old friends.

All performances must be between 20 and 55 minutes and contain a minimum of two speaking parts. The full rules for the Totton Festival can be found here.

Should you also wish to enter the national competition (the All England Theatre Festival) you must also make sure you adhere to their rules also.

If you would like to enter the festival please complete the online entry form below.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any questions about any aspect of the Totton Festival. We would love to hear from you.

The deadline for entries for the 2019 competition is the 26th January 2019.
