A friendly village-based society – new members welcomed

The Club was founded in 1952, building on the success of a pageant held to celebrate the Festival of Britain the previous year. It was felt that an organisation should be formed in the Village to encourage such enthusiasm and talent on a more permanent basis. And so it has remained.

Come and Join us!

As an active village drama group, we thrive only so long as we continue to attract both members and audiences.
Our policy is to welcome all comers, and put them to work as soon as possible. Whatever your talent, we can probably use it. See Contacts.

WARNING! Those who join us "just to make the tea"
usually end up on the stage anyway!

Benefits of Membership

Varied Drama Schedule

Typically the Club puts on a pantomime, a 3-act play and a musical event each year. Often we do far more than this. To some extent our schedule depends on the talents and availability of our members.

Youth & Junior sections too!

As a village organisation, we take seriously our responsibilities for giving the youth of the village something worthwhile to do with their leisure time. As well as being involved in the annual pantomime and the summer events, the Junior (6-11) and Youth (12-18) sections also put on their own shows from time to time.

Opportunities to Try Your Hand At . . .

Acting, of course, but also lighting, stage management, costumes, art work, publicity – you have an idea, and we'll consider it.

Social Events

From treasure hunts to barbecues to theatre visits, the Club organises a full social calendar for its members through the year.
