Listen Up! The Script Yorkshire radio drama competition.
We celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2019. But rather than have a celebratory blowout with booze and balloons, we decided to splash out on something much more fun: a radio competition for our members.
BBC producers Ciaran Bermingham and Stefan Escreet came on board to help us, with Ciaran reading every entry and selecting a shortlist of 12, from which Stefan chose the six winners he produced for us. Massive thanks to them both for all their time and expertise! Scroll down to listen to the winning plays...
Congratulations to our winners!
And a big thank you and very well done to all our entrants too; Ciaran and Stefan said it was a tough call having to select just six. So here, for your listening pleasure, are our winners' mini dramas...
