A word from our chairman

In a time where many aAlmateur societies seem to be struggling we are very fortunate to have a great base in the Parochial Hall and a wonderful team of performing and backstage people – who all put in a great deal of time and effort to ensure that we continue to provide top-quality entertainment for our audiences.


We recently enjoyed a fabulous week of entertainment with ourhugely succesful production of ‘Annie’. We had a wonderful cast of 30 children plus a great selection of adults and I am happy to say that we played to full houses all week.

Our next production is the play, ‘Where is the Life?’, written and produced by Martin Roache. This is a hilarious black comedy set in a home for retired gentlemen of the stage. Tickets for this playwill be on sale in 2017, watch this site or our Facebook page for details.

If you enjoy our shows and would like to get involved with the society then we are always keen to welcome new members! For further information just go to the ‘Contact Us’ page on this website and drop us an email, we look forward to hearing from you.
