As a part of The All-England Drama Festival, the weekend brings together seven of the regions most talented theatre groups, directors, actors and writers, performing short plays, both old and new. It all concludes on Sunday evening with the adjudicators review and awards, where the winning performance is chosen to represent Cheshire, at the Northern Final in Liverpool between 29 April and 1 May. It’s a rare opportunity for any theatre goer to experience a diverse collection of creative pieces, and should not be missed.
Tickets are £10 plus booking fee, per day. Where else can you watch seven productions over two days for £20?
