National Drama Festivals Association

The National Drama Festivals Association (NDFA) was founded in 1964 to encourage and support drama festivals in the UK. In 2017 inclusivity is our top priority. We engage with actors from the age of 10 to 80+ and teamwork is the name of the game in drama productions with dressmaking, set building, props management, lighting and sound as well as directors; producers, writers and front of house staff: everyone involved makes a significant contribution.
