Show Information

The prestigious 83rd British Final of One-Act Plays only comes to each country once every four years. The last time it was in Cardiff, it was won by Castaway Theatre Group from Aberystwyth who were awarded the winner’s trophy, the Howard de Walden cup, for their production of 'After Liverpool'.

Each year the United Kingdom Community Drama Festivals Federation (UKCKFF) promotes a series of One-Act Play Festivals in which theatre groups from the four corners of the UK compete to represent their own country at the British Final. These groups in communities throughout the UK read, cast, rehearse, produce, direct and perform one-act plays. Behind the scenes members put other valued skills to use in the areas of costume, hair and makeup, set designing, set building, set dressing, lighting, sound and stage managing.

These One-Act Festivals provide a unique opportunity for amateur theatre companies to appear in new and varying venues before widely differing audiences and receive professional constructive advice from the internationally recognised body of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators (GoDA).

The plays will commence each evening at 7pm with Wales & Northern Ireland on the Friday and Scotland and England on the Saturday.
