The current covid restrictions have caused a further postponement of the Worcestershire Theatre Festival and also changes to other festivals in the area and subsequent rounds of The All England Theatre Festivals.
The Worcestershire Theatre Festival will now take place at The Norbury Theatre, Droitwich on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June. This will be preceded by the Birmingham BFAME festival also at the Norbury Theatre on Friday evening, 25th June.
The weekend of theatre will conclude with the All England (Western Division) Quarter Final winner and runner-up being announced by the adjudicator at the end of Sunday evening. These groups will progress to the AETF semi-final at The Little Theatre in Leicester on 3rd July (the following Saturday).
The AETF English final will take place in Bridlington on Saturday 7th August and the British final will take place in Rhyl on 24th and 25th September.
