A Year To Remember
17 May 2020
THE BURNHAM FILM FESTIVAL 2020
At this time of year The Young Theatre often holds its biennial drama competition, The Burnham Trophy, when the group is sub-divided into teams; each tasked with devising, writing, producing, staging and performing
an original one-act play based on a given theme.
In 2020 — thanks to the novel coronavirus pandemic — this competition had to be replaced by something which members could produce during lockdown and apparently,
we have a number of budding film makers in the group.
Members had to come up with a three minute film on the subject of the year they were allocated using only the resources they had at home.
The films were published on YouTube on 17-May-2020 and the adjudication is shown under 'Result'.
Unfortunately, the group was unable to hold an AGM in 2020 so the Burnham Trophy was never awarded for this competition.
