How To Enter The 2022 Festival

Our 78th Welwyn Garden City Youth Drama Festival will open on 6th March 2022 and run to 12th March 2022.

This year we will be live at the Barn Theatre:

  • 1 Act play festival (5th March – 12th March)

Our usual drama festival with the full set of rules

  • Sunday Cinema (Sunday 6th March 2022)

An opportunity to enter short films in this non-competitive section of the festival. Films should be no more than 25 minutes and be a film, rather than a filmed live stage show.

  • Saturday Shorts (Saturday 12th March)

A great chance to explore those short pieces you have always wanted to perform. Monologues or group performances are welcome, but no longer than 8 minutes please. We will provide 1 lighting state to cover the whole stage, anything else if up to you to provide. Setup should be no longer than 2 minutes and strike no longer than 1 minutes, we will not be providing dressing rooms.

Both Saturday Shorts and Sunday Cinema will be non-competitive but we will offer awards in the ceremony at the end of festival week.

Closing date for entries is 26th November 2021.
