CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF WEST CHILTINGTON DRAMATIC SOCIETY Saturday 17 August at West Chiltington Village Hall. NOTE: doors open at 5.30pm for a 6pm start. We will be holding an unrehearsed play reading of Outside Edge by Richard Harris.

We will take tea cricket-style during the interval, and a licensed bar and raffle will be available. You are welcome to take part in the reading or just sit back and listen as Angela and Julian facilitate. Cricket attire is optional. The play was chosen as it is one of a handful of plays which WCDS has produced twice in its 75 years Several current members were involved in one or the other of these productions in 1987 and 2009.

Village Show WCDS 2024

The WCDS stand at the West Chiltington Village Show on Saturday 13 July was a great success. We had lots of helpers, attired an an assortment of costumes to celebrate the timeline of the society's 75 year history. Visitors showed lots of interest in our society, and we trust that some of those to whom we chatted will make further contact with us. You can email us at

One little girl went away very happy having won Paddington Bear in our Dr Who treasure hunt competition.

Although it was never intended to video the play, Rob took some clips and stills which he has assembled into a video memory. It is with the photographs from our production of DARK LUCY in our Archive pages at Archive 2024.
