Annual Drama Festival

The Brentwood Catholic Theatre Club have been organising the annual competitive one act drama festival since 1948. This means we have now been running for over 70 years, possibly making it one of the longest running one act drama festivals' in the UK. In recent years we have changed our name to the BC Drama Festival as we are not associated with the Catholic church or the Brentwood Diocese since the 1990's. We felt this change would make us more appealing to groups. We also think that it is one of the friendliest and we welcome old friends, new participants and young performers. Although originally only groups from within the Brentwood Diocese were allowed to enter, the competition is now open to any drama group or theatre company from anywhere in the UK.

Adult Ticket £12.00
Concession Ticket £9.00

Tickets will be on sale shortly, please check our site for updates.

Performances start at 7.30pm each evening, with a matinee starting at 2.30pm on the Saturday. The final evening performances then start at 7:00pm, followed by the award ceremony. Depending on the number of groups who enter will dictate which evening we start the run from. Usually it has started on a Thursday however we have started on a Wednesday evening. We will keep people updated via our site, social media and the theatre.

It is great fun to watch and a great learning opportunity both for participating groups as well as students of drama and theatre studies and as many of the top local theatre companies have entered this should be another Festival to remember.
