During the summer of 2013 we attended The National Drama Festival Association's 40th British All Winners Festival in Teignmouth with The 39 Steps and to our great suprise and delight we won all of the big three awards for a full length play.

We won the Mary Blakeman Trophy for the Winner of the Full Length Section, the Sydney Fisher Trophy for Backstage and the Halifax Evening Courier Award for Audience Appreciation!

We add that to the Glamorgan Drama League awards: Best Director, Best Presentation and Best Play and to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) District Award for Best Technical/Stage Management! What a haul!
