Why are there no groups from the UK?

There are a large number of amateur dramatic festivals in the UK, whereas there is – to the best of our knowledge – only one in English (FEATS) in mainland Europe. It doesn’t seem fair to allow UK groups yet another festival to enter, when groups in mainland Europe don’t have the same reciprocal possibilities, owing to distance and logistical considerations.

However, the winner of FEATS is usually invited to take part in the British All Winners Festival each year – providing that the FEATS organising committee and the adjudicator think that the standard of the FEATS winner is sufficiently high.
