DRAMA at ENNIS
Ennis Players is delighted to host the 2021 All-Ireland 1-Act Finals Festival of Drama under the auspices of the Drama League of Ireland & the Amateur Drama Council of Ireland and with the Support of Clare County Council, Creative Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. The Finals festival takes place from December 3rd to 5th in the beautiful glór theatre with 11 productions staged over 4 sessions. The weekend will be the culmination of 16 preliminary festivals where groups compete to earn points towards qualifying for the All-Ireland, bringing together the top eleven amateur drama groups from across the 32 counties for a weekend celebration of theatre.
A range of fringe events are planned, from Trad sessions to Walking tours and Tours of the surrounding County as well as the nightly Festival club in the Old Ground hotel. Ennis and its surrounds boast a large selection of accommodation from B&Bs to budget Hostels and 3 & 4 star Hotels, there is something to suit all price ranges. Special accommodation packages have been offered by our hospitality partners and pre-theatre meal deals will also be on offer across the town. Ennis is renowned for its wide range of independent boutiques and shops, earning the title of boutique capital of Ireland, so there will be ample opportunity to complete the Christmas gift list.
Tickets for all the theatre events can be purchased through the glór website.
Ennis Players previously hosted the Finals in 2003 and 2011 and both occasions were huge successes. For a review of the 2011 event check out this blog.
