2021 Festival

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainties resulting from Covid 19, it has been decided that it is not feasible to hold a Bristol One Act Drama Festival in 2021.

However, all is not lost as we are combining with the Avon Association of Drama to put on a joint Festival, called

The Avon and Bristol Short Play Festival


It is set to take place from Wednesday 24 February to Saturday 27 February 2021 

in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall, BS37 6AD

with 2 productions being presented each night.


Of course, this is dependent on Government restrictions at the time.

Fingers crossed, it will be able to go ahead.

More news will be posted on this website as things become clearer.


This is a one-off arrangement in these very unusual circumstances and the Bristol One Act Drama Festival aims to be back, bigger and better than ever, in 2022.

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
