Welcome - thank you for visiting our website.
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.
Despite two years of enforced closure and some wintry weather, our 82nd Festival was a great success. It was wonderful to see old faces and new audience members return for each production, to have some new Sponsors join our loyal financial supporters and to enjoy a week of funny, poignant and challenging live theatre under the guidance of our popular Adjudicator, Chris Jaeger.
We are now looking forward to 2024
2023 overall winners: Newpoint Players, Newry
