Leicestershire & Rutland Drama Festival

LRDfestival is an annual competition to showcase the talents of amateur dramatic groups from the Leicestershire & Rutland area. We invite all local groups to enter a ‘One Act Play’ to the festival and these are showcased to the public over the course of several nights, culminating in a results and awards ceremony on the final night. The event also doubles up as a preliminary round of the AETF (All-England Theatre Festival) for those groups seeking to progress further.
