A note to our entrants this year

Hi there!

Thank you so much for entering a play into the Welwyn Drama Festival this year. Our play readers are currently reading all the plays. They aim to meet together in a few weeks to draw up an entertaining programme, based on your availabilities and the plays submitted.  To provide our audience with a full and entertaining week we still need a couple more entries, so if you know of any other teams who may be interested, please let them, or me, know.

I will be in touch towards the end of March to confirm that your play has been accepted and to check that your team can still make the date proposed.

The scripts will then be sent to the adjudicator, and you will receive a technical pack requesting staging information, such as sound and lighting, as well as any special requirements, special effects etc.

We also require some information for marketing purposes that may be used on the website, social media and in printed publicity materials, as well as in the printed programme. This includes a brief description of your play, some team information, and a photo or two.

Any questions? Please get in touch!

It’s all about the numbers this month:

  • we’re a ONE act play festival
  • TWO entries are from new teams
  • THREE entries are from previous winning teams
  • Our FOUR play readers are busy reading and swapping scripts
  • We’ve received FIVE entries for new plays…
  • … and SIX published plays
  • SEVEN teams are based in Hertfordshire
  • And we have ELEVEN plays so far!

There’s room for more though – if you still wish to be considered, just get in touch!
