The Ticket To Write Festival is a showcase of original plays based on The Beatles. 

The event, now in its fifth year, has attracted well over 70 plays and sketches about Liverpool's favourite sons from all around the world. These were  entered as part of annual competition with a modest cash prize.

In 2016, our fifth year, we are planning to stage some of the high quality plays that did not quite make the final cut in earlier years.


We are pleased to announce that Francesca Goodridge has agreed to be the Artistic Director for the Ticket to Write Festival 2016.  In June her production of the 60s' musical Shout! The Mod Musical was performed at Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre.

Francesca is currently a Trainee Director at The Other Room, Cardiff, where she is learning her craft from some of the top theatre directors. She was Assistant Director for their productions of  Constellation Street and St Nicholas. Francesca was also Assistant Director for an outdoor performance of Charlotte's Web at Oystermouth Castle.

 Since graduating from Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) with a BA Hons in Acting she has worked as an actress, singer and director. She is lead singer of a South Wales based function band The Poptarts.
