Totton Festival of Drama 2024

Enter our 2024 Festival

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.

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.
