Description:The Hereford County Drama Festival has had a long and prestigious history. Last year, however, it looked like the Festival would be no more. Dwindling audiences and limited entries had meant that the Festival was becoming unviable financially. Thanks to the timely generosity of the Market Theatre, Ledbury in placing their facilities at the disposal of the Festival organisers it has been possible for the HCDF to continue for at least another year. A first hurdle which has now been successfully negotiated was to ensure that sufficient entries to the Festival were obtained. This has been achieved with an abundance of one act plays being offered — 13 in all.
