Wellington Drama Festival

In November each year the Wellington Theatre Company, located at the Belfrey Theatre, hosts a Drama Festival, for both Adults and Youth, aimed at encouraging Amateur Drama in Shropshire and beyond.

Both Full Length and One Act Plays can be entered. All entries to the Festival will be adjudicated. Companies who are familiar with Festivals will be well aware of the benefits resulting from an assessment by an experienced eye. Youth drama groups, in particular, can gain immeasurably from adjudication.

I hope you will be interested in entering and below are links to:
