The All-England Theatre Festival ("AETF") organises the only country-wide eliminating contest for one-act plays in performance throughout England. It provides an opportunity for Amateurs to compete against like-minded groups and to benefit from the adjudication they receive to improve the quality of their performance. The AETF also maintains contact with other leading bodies involved in Amateur Dramatics throughout the United Kingdom by means of its membership of the Central Council for Amateur Theatre, The Drama Festivals Consortium and the British Finals Standing Committee. The festival is also involved with the Geoffrey Whitworth Trophy Competition, in conjunction with the other 'Hosts' of the British Festival, to judge Original, unpublished Scripts that are first produced within the relevant Festivals.
Annually Enact Academy Seniors take part within the Central division (The Tamworth Hastilow Festival) of the AETF. We have had some great success over the years winning multiple awards and gaining recognition for the students hard work.
Enact Academy Seniors & AETF
AETF 2017 - The Enact Academy Seniors took their performance of THE OVERCOAT to the festival with great success. We received excellent feedback and constructive criticism from the adjudicator. Watch this space, we haven't quite finished with THE OVERCOAT yet and you may find us popping up on the Birmingham Drama Festival scene some time in July...
Below are some photos of the pre-performance rehearsal.
