Chance to hit the airwaves

THERE is still time for budding playwrights in the High Peak to enter a competition which could see their work broadcast on the radio.

Buxton Drama League has teamed up with High Peak Radio to bring one person’s writing to life.

The winning play will be broadcast on air as an entry for this summer’s Buxton Festival Fringe.

Entries must consist of a short radio play - around 15 minutes in length.

It doesn’t have to be a polished script, as the league will work with the author to produce the final version if necessary.

It will then be performed by Buxton Drama League and broadcast in three five-minute episodes on High Peak Radio as part of the High Peak Performance slot.

Conditions apply: contact High Peak Radio for more details.

The deadline is Friday May 25. Entries should be emailed to
