Why not join us?

We are a friendly and active Society with two productions a year (Spring and Autumn), regular Newsletters, Members Evenings (with entertainment and supper) and other events plus visits to other groups’ performances. Don’t worry if you don’t want to appear on stage. Backstage and front-of-house crew are always welcome, plus help with organising Members Events, food, raffles, setting out the hall, and so on. The list is virtually endless. Anyone of any age can join either as an Active Member or as a Patron.

We are especially looking for people aged 25-60

Members will receive regular (about 4) newsletters a year plus reduced cost of tickets to Members Events.
