British Final Festival of One-Act Plays

The pinnacle of all the regional rounds, across the four countries: all the months of rehearsing, travelling and last-minute nerves.

At the end of June/beginning of July, the winner of the Wales One Act Final represents the country by competing against their English, Irish and Scottish counterparts at the British Final Festival of One Act Plays.

The British Final moves around the four countries: in 2016, it came back to Wales.

The Best Production winners of the British and Welsh Finals are listed on their own pages Winners of British One Act Final Festival and Winners of Wales One Act Final Festival.
