at Iron Acton Village Hall

Five plays were presented, including original works, two on the Friday evening, two on Saturday afternoon and one on Saturday  evening

followed by the awards ceremony


Entries were adjudicated by Chris Jaeger MBE GoDA

The OLYMPUS Theatre

Olympus Theatre, Wise Campus, SGS College, Stoke Gifford, Bristol, BS34 8LP

The Olympus Theatre is a 250-seat state-of-the-art theatre space at the Wise Campus of the South Gloucestershire and Stroud college (formerly Filton College) in Stoke Gifford, Bristol. 

The Wise Campus is mixed Performing Arts and Sports campus, as such The Olympus Theatre shares its car park with the sports facilities. At times parking space can be limited and, with this in mind, the Festival committee suggests you give yourself ample time to park prior to our prompt 7:00pm start time. 


Please note that the car park now charges for parking.  Pay and Display machines are on site charging approximately £1 per hour
