2021 Festival

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainties resulting from Covid 19, it has not been feasible to arrange a Bristol One Act Drama Festival for 2021.

However, we have combined with the Avon Association of Drama to put on a joint Festival, called

The Avon and Bristol Short Play Festival


In the light of the Government's current road map it has been necessary to defer the original arrangements to hold it at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall and it will now be held on  


Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July

at Iron Acton Village Hall

BS37 9UH


There will be an evening session on Friday and

2 sessions on Saturday (afternoon and evening)


Fingers crossed, there will be no further changes. 

More news on the programme will be posted on this website .



This is a one-off arrangement in these very unusual circumstances.

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
