We are pleased to launch FesTeLõn OFF 2020, a chance for amateur and emerging theatre companies in the UK to perform a piece of Spanish theatre here in London in April.

The winning company will perform at FesTeLõn 2020 in October, along with free entry to the festival of Spanish theatre and to a masterclass taking place in May.

We are very excited to bring this fringe-style theatre festival to you, as we did first launch it last year but unfortunately we were not able to put it on. This means that we are more enthusiastic than ever to see your performances!

We are now OPEN for submissions so please email us at info@festivalspanishtheatre.co.uk with the information mentioned the poster to enter. We look forward to reading your submissions!

If you have a friend that might be interested, please be sure to let them know about this festival.
