Each club performed a short drama piece which the members skilfully wrote and produced themselves.

Each evening, the performances were judged by independent adjudicators Rosenne Sturgeon and Joanna Martin who looked at the content, presentation, technical competence, audience appeal and general effect.

The top five clubs who have made it through to perform at the arts festival gala at the Millennium Forum, Londonderry on Saturday, March 16 are: Holestone YFC, Glarryford YFC, Kilrea YFC, Kilraughts YFC and Finvoy YFC.

Prizes presented at this year’s gala will include most amusing moment, most imaginative theme, best choral piece, best choreography, best newcomer and outstanding performance of the night.
