5th UK International Radio Drama Festival

The festival presents five days of live listening to radio/audio plays drawn from 18 different countries and presented in 15 different languages.

This year’s theme – celebrating our fifth anniversary – takes as its theme “your best ever work” and has attracted over 60 entries ranging in length from a couple of minutes to a full hour. Listening sessions take place throughout the day from Monday – Friday.

We listen together in glorious mono, recreating the experience of the 1 million plus daily UK audio drama listeners, many of whom enjoy their audio drama in the car or in the kitchen. Listening sessions are free and members of the public are very welcome on a drop- in basis.

For those who cannot make it to Canterbury, all plays included in the festival are available to hear via our website.

An English language script is available to live and online listeners for all plays; reading in English whilst listening in another language is an experience very similar to watching a film with subtitles.
