Following the success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in October 2021, we are now planning the performances for our summer festival from Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th July 2022. Please come back to check!
Complementing the current Wells Literary, Arts, Comedy and Food festivals, the Wells Theatre Festival aims to attract a theatre-going public of all ages, whilst also encouraging young people to participate in theatre practice. Oscar winning actress, Dame Judi Dench and renowned director, Sir Richard Eyre are patrons for the festival.
We are lucky enough to have some great photos from previous years’ festivals. Have a look at them here.

There are lots of ways you can be involved with Wells Theatre Festival. Find out what roles we need help with here.
We are delighted to have Dame Judi Dench and Sir Richard Eyre as our patrons.
Come and help out at the festival. We need people who love theatre to join us back and front of house.
The 2020 festival was cancelled due to the Covid outbreak, but we are returning in October 2021. We’d like to thank all of the performers who participated in 2019, and we’d also like to thank all of the people who came out and supported live theatre and gave us such nice feedback on the performances they saw.
We are currently putting together a list of performers for next year and will let you know as soon as we can about the artists involved. If you’d like to be involved, please get in touch. Follow Wells Theatre Festival on Twitter and Facebook to get news of tickets and events for 2021. Wells Theatre Festival is proud to support Anthony Nolan.
