Spelthorne & Runnymede Drama Festival (live at Riverside)


The voting for the virtual drama festival entries is now closed, but the on stage entries will be performed at Riverside Arts Centre this week. The Riverside Players of Sunbury entry, Star of Wonder by Richard Fordyce, will receive its world premiere at the RAC stage on Wednesday 20th October at 7.30pm. Star of Wonder is an earthy, amusing, but moving re-telling of one of the greatest stories ever told. Join Melchior, Caspar and high priestess, Bakhita, as they follow a mysterious star to Bethlehem, in a quest to reach the fabled Messiah before the tyrannical King Herod does.

Tickets are £7 and available to buy on the door. We would love to see you there!



Spelthorne & Runnymede Virtual Drama Festival - Vote for us!

Following a fully virtual festival last year due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year's festival takes a hybrid approach with a live on-stage festival running in parallel with a virtual one. 

The live festival will take place at Riverside Arts Centre 19th-23rd October 2021. Riverside Players is partaking and our entry, 'Star of Wonder' by Richard Fordyce, will be performed on the Wednesday evening of the festival. This play won the Riverside Players playwriting competition earlier in the year. 

It's the virtual festival where anyone, drama enthusiast or not, can vote for their favourite entry! Riverside Players has entered four short plays: Amazing Grace, Hold Still, Taking It On The Chin and The Campaigner. All you need to do to vote is:

1. Watch the virtual entries on the festival YouTube playlist HERE

2. Use THIS form to vote fo your favourite entry in each category. 

Voting closes on 10th October 2021 and details of the awards ceremony will be posted once voting has closed.
