Theatre companies entering the Rose Bowl Award competition pay an entry fee which contributes towards the adjudication costs. However, in order to keep the fee as low as possible, we rely heavily on the voluntary support and goodwill of a dedicated group of people for administration and fundraising. We are always interested in the possibility of financial support of any kind – please contact our Treasurer, Peter Stoppard on 01275 392069 or email
