new website

Our website will soon look very different: it has been entirely re-written in a modern format so that it will display appropriately whether you're looking at it on a large computer, a tablet, or on your mobile phone.

The concept is simple: where there's not enough room on your screen to view items side-by-side they will automatically stack one on top of the other. You'll need to get used to scrolling down to see all the content

The new site has been tested by some of our members and they say they like it a lot. Watch this space.

STOP PRESS: the new website will go live on Monday 23 September

We are...

... a very friendly long established but go-ahead group who enjoy getting together to put on plays for the local community. Come and watch our productions or come and help.

The West Chiltington Drama Festival 2019 came to its end on Saturday at the Gala Night: the village hall was dressed up to the nines to receive the august group of the cast and crews of the seven competing societies, audience members and distinguished guests. The evening began with a reception giving the opportunity for the various groups to exchange notes on all things theatrical. After this everyone sat down to hear Geofrey Steward, the WCDS Chairman, thank everyone who had contributed so wonderfully to make the event a resounding success. The adjudicator, Mike Tilbury, then announced the winners in the various prize categories. The president of WCDS, Hermin Daley, presented specially made commemorative plates to the individual winners, and the shield for best production.
