This is the 33rd Wallingford Corn Exchange Drama Festival, one of several festivals in the region where you can see amateur dramatics at its best and hear and learn from a professional adjudicator about acting. Each group is given 1 hour to build their set, perform their play and strike the set. There will be two plays each night and an adjudication at the end. And on the Saturday night the winners and prizes will be announced including a punters’ prize that audience members can award. This year Nancy Heath from the Guild of Drama Adjudicators will be judging. She has studied in Maine, USA, and at the University of Hull and has over 30 years’ working in both amateur and professional drama and 9 years’ teaching experience in secondary school drama.
