The future of the AAD


After discussion it has been decided that in the future Avon Association of Drama's main function will be to run the Avon One-Act Drama Festival, a preliminary round of the AETF, with its Web-Site, Facebook and insurance.

Therefore we will no longer be asking for membership subscriptions but are inviting drama groups and individuals to become 'Friends of AAD' by signing up to this mailing 


 Please let your members

and drama friends know!

 The AAD has a direct connection to FaceBook
