Welcome to The Wharfedale Festival of Theatre




Social distancing is not going to stop the Wharfedale Festival of Theatre holding its Awards Evening!


Following the lockdown, we were forced to postpone the 2020 Awards Evening which, was to be held at the Leeds West Academy.


After various discussions and taking advice from socially-minded experts, we have decided to present the 2020 Wharfedale Festival of Theatre’s Awards Evening as a LIVE online event via Zoom.


This is exciting news for the Wharfedale Festival of Theatre because it not only means we can abide by the Government’s guide lines on social gatherings, but also host our very first LIVE virtual awards evening.


The Wharfedale Festival of Theatre Awards Evening for 2020 will now take place across the following dates…
