Drama Awards

Our Annual Drama Awards programme provides an opportunity for not-for-profit theatrical groups across Sussex to showcase their work to wider audiences and to celebrate and recognise the talents of all those involved.

Each group can enter one production from their autumn season. This is assessed by a professional adjudicator who gives feedback on all aspects of their production.

Details of the groups and dates of the performances to be adjudicated are published in the September-November edition of the Arts Diary.  Individual and group awards for artistic, technical and overall excellence are presented before an invited audience in a glittering ‘Oscars’ ceremony in December.
