A Few More Things
Here are a few more things you'll need to know when you complete and submit the entry form:
It's £25 to enter one performance
If you'd like a written adjudication from the adjudicator (in addition to the verbal one you'll receive at the festival) then there will be an addition fee.
You must bring your licence to perform with you on the day. It is recommended that you apply for a performance licence well in advance.
We recommend Public Liability Insurance of £5,000,000.
At least two people must be in your production. There's no upper limit
When you enter, you'll be asked to declare whether you'd like to go forward to the next and subsequent rounds of the All England Theatre Festival if you come first or second in the Worcestershire Theatre Festival. (We'll pay your AETF membership subscription if you decide to go forward)
The final version of your script is needed by us by January 31st 2021
The All England Theatre Festival
If you would like to go through to the next round of the competition (if selected), click here to read the All England Theatre Festival rules and Declaration Form and return the Declaration Form with your entry form. Please check that your cast /performers will be available to perform on the various dates of the All England rounds.
There are a number of things to consider, most particularly the performance must last at least 20 minutes but no longer than 55 minutes. You also only have 10 minutes to set, bear this in mind when designing your stage. Have a look at our WTF Rules and FAQs for more details.
The festival will be be held at The Norbury Theatre Droitwich on 6th & 7th March 2021
There will be 4 sessions; Saturday afternoon and evening, Sunday afternoon and evening. There are usually three performances in each session. Application forms will be available from 30th September 2020. There will be an opportunity to view the theatre and talk to our technical people about staging, lights and sound. This will be in late January early February 202, date to be confirmed.
