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;
recently we raised funds with Westoning Parish Church and the WI. For
year 2015/6 we supported Help for Heroes...

We've also performed interactive murder mysteries by 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 WELCOME to attend... but only paid up MEMBERS may vote...
