Teignmouth Drama Festival The Teignmouth Drama Festival is now in its 20th year and is open to any amateur drama group, principally in Devon: both senior and youth groups are welcome.

Please note the venue for the 2016 Festival - see the 'Dates & Info' panel to the right. Visit the Shaftesbury Theatre website for a location map - tickets will be available from their box-office.

We employ a professional Adjudicator who is usually a member of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators (GODA). Our Adjudicator for 2016 is Russell Whiteley of GODA; he has wide experience of judging festivals throughout the U.K.

Each team will receive a verbal adjudication that is constructive and analytical and normally gives valuable pointers for improving the production.

Winning teams have the opportunity to go forward to the final rounds of the AETF. It is Festival policy to make a small contribution to each entering group's expenses, up to £30.

The Festival is a member of the National Drama Festival Association (NDFA) who also organise the British All Winners Festival; we are proud that the 2013 festival was held in Teignmouth.
