The College English Theatre Festival is to encourage college students to explore the world of English theatre. METF will provide the performing teams with an auditorium to stage the plays; make-up, lighting and refreshments for the teams will also be taken care of by METF.

METF is a group of theatre enthusiasts who have come together to promote English theatre activities, for the first time in the city of Mysuru and is focusing on creating a stage for English theatre. Its activities include facilitating the production of English plays by providing the required support in the form of arrangements for the staging of plays by interested groups, and also providing directorial support if required. METF also regularly conducts informal play reading sessions and is in the process of preparing for a public stage reading of an interesting play as an experiment. Membership in METF is consistently growing, and anybody interested in English theatre is welcome to join the group.
