About Westoning Players
Westoning Players (What We Do)
We do drama. We do like our audiences to enjoy themselves!  They come from further afield
than just Bedfordshire, but we are basically a village society, rehearsing and performing in
Westoning Village Hall.

We regularly link with local village organizations in order to raise funds for them; recently
we raised funds with Westoning Parish Church and the WI.
In year 2015/6 we supported Help for Heroes...in 2017/18 Bedford Hospitals Charity and
PAncreatic Cnacer Research Fund.
... for 2019 it's NICU (L&D) & Prostate Cancer UK.

We've also performed interactive murder mysteries by member Claire Jones
see links on the "Contact Us" page) as supper theatre with the local WI, with
them preparing supper, running the bar and doing the tickets and other
front-of-house activities.

Westoning Players (Who We Are)

Westoning Players are a very sociable, friendly amateur dramatic group with members from Westoning
and surrounding areas of Central Bedfordshire.

The group was formed in 1975 and we perform two or three productions a year, striving to include as
many members as possible on stage and off.

Membership costs only c.79pence/week
(£15pa +50p/wk)
Student & Associate (non-acting) membership is £8/year.  
The same cost for several  years!!!  Excellent value for money!

We are fortunate to have a pool of committed, skilled and willing members, all keen to be involved in all
aspects of theatre-craft.
And social events too (see photos elsewhere...)

Westoning Players  run by a committee, elected from our AGM at the end/start of each WP year. ALL
