82nd Ballymoney Drama Festival

3rd - 11th March, 2023

After the disappointment of having to cancel in 2022, we are delighted to be able to say that planning for the 82nd Ballymoney Drama Festival in 2023 is underway.

The Syllabus and Entry Form will soon be ready to send to competing Companies and we look forward to their entries.

The full programme should be available on the website in January, 2023






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. 

It is now two years since nine of the best amateur drama groups in the Province entertained us with

an exciting and varied programme. We look forward to welcoming them - and our audiences - back to Ballymoney Town Hall in 2023. 

2020 overall winners: Newpoint Players, Newry
