There will be no Drama Festival in Ballymoney next year.

Due to the ongoing Pandemic, the Festival Committee has reluctantly decided to postpone the 82nd Ballymoney Drama Festival until 2022. Until now, only the Second World War has necessitated a break in our long history; we look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as it is practical and safe to do so. 

Thank you for your interest and support.

Stay safe and well. .






Ballymoney is proud to host the oldest Drama Festival of its kind in Ireland.

The Festival provides audiences with a rare opportunity to see a variety of well-written plays, many of which have already been successful in the West End and on Broadway, close to home and for a very reasonable price. 

Last year nine of the best amateur drama groups in the Province entertained us with an exciting and varied programme. There were some wonderful moments of theatre! 

Congratulations to the 2020 overall winners
