Welcome to HADS

Watch this space… could this be the first face-to-face event for over a year?!

Thursday 20 May at 8pm (tentative, to be confirmed)


We’ve tried to keep you all engaged and entertained during lockdown with our monthly online play readings and we’ve certainly had some fun in the process, but… well… it’s just not the same as being in the same space with each other is it?!

So we are very excited to be planning next month’s play reading as an in-person event at the village hall!  We’re just waiting to confirm the booking and then we’ll email everyone on the mailing list with details.

We are also excited to tell you that we have reserved the performing licence for a fantastic comedy for our winter production… we still need to confirm the venue and the dates, but we’re working on that and will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, we will be reading the play in May so that you can see what it’s about before the formal auditions take place without committing to taking part.

Going forward, we recognise that many people have busy lives and that the online play readings are popular for various reasons, so we will be continuing to offer these every other month.  They allow you the opportunity to play characters for which you might not necessarily be cast, in plays we might not necessarily be able to stage!  

Please subscribe to the mailing list to get the latest news as it breaks.

Please stay in touch via our Facebook page or email and let us know of any bright ideas for home-based get togethers!  You can also follow us on Twitter or Instagram or stay informed via WhatsApp.  There are lots of free, theatre-related resources currently available which we’ve posted on Facebook, for example improving your acting skills with the Royal Court’s Bitesize tutorials made for the BBC.



Do get in touch if you need help, advice or simply a chat. Look after yourselves and each other – it won’t be long now until we can resume normal activities!
