A big thank you to everyone who was involved in this year’s panto. It was absolutely superb and played to full houses almost every performance. A great job done by all.



“When We Are Married” by J. B. Priestly – April 18 – 21. This will be performed as a tribute to Bill Moss. Paul Taylor (director) has cast the play and rehearsals are now underway.

The choice of play for our summer production is yet to be decided but will be staged from 4 – 7 July 2018.

Our autumn production will be Mike Harding’s ‘Comfort and Joy’ and will be staged from 3 – 6 October 2018
