The Bollington Festival Players (BFP) are members of the Cheshire Theatre Guild. That means that they have every performance adjudicated by a professional adjudicator from the Guild. Every year the Guild have an awards ceremony at which they give awards to societies across Cheshire based on performances during the previous season… it is a very large number of societies and a range of categories.
The 2014/5 awards ceremony was held on 15th July at The Little Theatre in Altrincham. They had a total of 16 nominations and won 6 awards! This is fantastic and I’m pretty sure you will recognise the productions below from our last couple of seasons:

Best Costume – Bollington Festival Players.
Best Director (Junior production) – Emma Sheldon, Nigel Wells and Josh Bratherton for James and the Giant Peach.
The ‘Oh Yes You Have’ Trophy for Best Pantomime – Bollington Festival Players for Robin Hood and Babes in the Wood (5 years running!)
