The Five Counties Youth Festival

The Five Counties Youth Festival returns to the Merlin for a Sunday afternoon of excellent youth drama. 
Teams from Bristol, Somerset and Hampshire will present the winning plays from their respective county Festivals, and adjudicator Nancy Heath, GoDA Associate, will give a public adjudication of each immediately after their performances, helping all those involved to understand and to appreciate the work of other young actors. At the end of the afternoon she will make the difficult decision as to which is the ‘Best in the South-West’ and therefore this year’s winner of the Mike Bishop Trophy. 
Pictured are members of St Alban’s Players (Juniors) who were the winning youth team at Bristol’s One Act Drama Festival in February, with their colourful and highly enjoyable production of Michael Soetaert’s The Meadow.
