Little Gaddesden Drama Club Logo

The Drama Club is now in the planning stages of an Autumn Revue, on 2, 3 and 4 November 2023.  Shaun McCarthy and Benjamin Dawson are coordinating the material, and members and new members are cordially invited to come to the Village Hall on Wednesday 21 June 2023 for a get-together to see what they’ve got and to review various sketches and numbers that we might do.

The plan is to combine the get-together with our AGM.  We’ll get the formal stuff done as quickly as possible, and then get to the Revue material…and a drink!  Please come along for 7:30pm on 21 June.  A reminder to existing members with a formal AGM notice – as required by our constitution – has gone out.  In the meantime, please save the date!

A copy is available here, and a copy of a contemporaneous explanatory leaflet ‘How it All Came About’ is available here. We are planning to update the constitution to be better suited for the way we operate today.
