At last … Ladies and gentlemen,  today we present the Finals of the Festival’s Radio Playscript Competition!

John Gorman inaugurated the Radio Playscript Competition in 2014, and all through May 2015, members of the Wirral Community Theatre have been performing the scripts submitted at a series of heats hosted by Sue Boardman.

Members of the audience selected the scripts shortlisted for the Finals happening today Wednesday 1st July at 7.30pm at the Wirral Arts Centre, 29 Brookfields Gardens, West Kirby CH48 4EL. Tickets are just £4 and are available at the door.

In the finals, scripts by Monica Price & John Gregory, Derek Sellen and John Bird will be performed as radio plays, and an adjudication panel will decide on the winner. We have a lively panel of adjudicators consisting of BBC Radio Mersyside's  Billy Butler,Wirral Radio's  Johnny Kennedy and the Wirral Community Theatre's Gareth Jones (our favourite Pantomime Dame!). Wirral Arts Centre has a well-stocked bar. Come along, enjoy a great evening – and see whether you agree with the judges!
