Get ready to Amplify the laughter!

Amplified is your passport to the hottest Black and Asian comedy writing competition in Britain, and it’s making its grand debut here at Birmingham Hippodrome. 

Brace yourselves for a glittering awards ceremony and night of side-splitting humour as we celebrate extraordinary talent from diverse backgrounds with five uproarious plays that will have you in stitches.

A star-studded panel of judges, hailed from the realms of TV, broadcasting, and the stage, will award the ultimate Amplified champion. Plus, YOU, the amazing audience, wield the power to crown the Audience Award winner!

Here’s what’s in store:

  • Red carpet reception (and a change to get dressed up!)
  • Networking
  • 5 mesmerising plays
  • Urban Beats and Bhangra Vibes
  • Glitzy awards ceremony

Dress to impress or go smart casual!

Amplified is proud to be a part of the Enter.Stage.Write franchise and will be a highlight of the illustrious StoryTown conference.
