All England Theatre Festival

The All England Theatre Festival is an annual competition held for amateur theatre companies across the whole country. It aims to encourage high standards of drama and to allow amateur companies the chance to have their work seen by a wider audience. The first round of the Southern Division competition is held each year in Totton at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre. Subsequent rounds, competing against the other first-round competition winners are held at various locations in the respective areas. While the festival has been operating for many years, Bench Theatre has been contributing and competing since 2006.
