Ballymoney Drama Festival 2022 has been cancelled

Due to continuing concerns about the potential impact of Coronavirus and the small number of eligible entries received, Ballymoney Drama Festival Committee has regretfully decided to cancel the Festival which had been scheduled for 2022. 

We apologise to everyone who shares our disappointment and look forward to to staging the

82nd Festival in March 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. 

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
