Castleblayney Drama Festival 2019

Castleblayney Drama Festival is 30 years on the go and now offers 9 nights of quality plays from the top amateur groups around Ireland.

This year we are running from Friday March 1st to Saturday 9th at Íontas Theatre 8pm (except final night 7.30pm).

We welcome drama groups from Wexford, Galway, Tyrone, Armagh, Dublin, Mayo & Donegal who will battle it out to gain points towards their goal of a place in the All-Ireland Finals. To adjudicate each night will be Ciaran Mc Cauley from Sligo who has experience with all aspects of drama, on stage and back stage.

Castleblayney is proud to have one of the best venues in the country – Íontas Theatre. Our Drama Festival is Community based, organised by volunteers and we are proud that our Festival attracts so many drama groups to perform here.

You can support our Festival by enjoying a night out at any of the plays in Íontas where you can also relax in the café/bar and enjoy the art exhibition in the foyer. The final night with the Awards Presentation will feature live music in the bar.
