A WEBSITE for the Belper Short Play festival is now up and running. The festival is aimed at encouraging writers, performers and groups to take their work to the general public and will feature outdoor performances in the Memorial Gardens and the River Gardens to mark the Queen’s silver jubilee.

Co-ordinator George Gunby said: “For a number of years the town of Tenby in South Wales has successfully staged a small play festival. This has grown into an internationally recognised event, attracting a considerable number of visitors. We hope we can do the same for Belper.”

Plays should be no longer than 15 minutes. and must include the Queen but she should not appear. The closing date for entries is April 30. For more information visit www.belpershortplays.com
