About Scriptwriters Bath & Co

“I’m first and foremost interested in the story, the characters” - David Lean

Scriptwriters Bath & Co is for you if you're a playwright, screenwriter, script reader, actor, filmmaker and/or theatrical producer at any stage of your career and wherever you live.

The idea for SB&Co evolved because there's so much creative talent in and around Bath, yet nowhere united people interested in the performing arts: stage, audio, screen and more. Together we'll be stronger.

This is a place where theatre, radio, film and TV people can network and support one another, online or in person, in a collaborative, constructive, positive environment. As our name implies, we're based in the south west of England. But these days, does it matter?

Please join us on Facebook and feel free to share questions or information on anything from loglines, plots and venues to auditions, scriptwriting competitions and film festivals. Think of this as your go-to creative community. Who knows what links you may forge to progress your career?

Our inaugural Scratch Night on 24 March 2020 was cancelled due to Coronavirus.

We're hoping to resume on Tuesday 19 May, with networking and a free drink from 6.30pm (for a 7pm kick-off), a fabulous guest speaker, then readings and discussions until 9.30pm - though you're welcome to chat until closing time.

The first SB&Co One-Day Writing Retreat on Wednesday 29 April 2020 was also postponed.

Clearly this is a disappointing start, but we're still really looking forward to getting to know you at Scriptwriters Bath & Co events, and hearing your ideas.

Please sign up now to make sure you get the details.

Till we meet in person, keep writing, acting, directing, shooting, producing and posting online... whatever!
