The Gaddesden Society Drama Club

Little Gaddesden Drama Club

Little Gaddesden Drama Club (LGDC)
was founded in 1947. It began by putting on plays on a make-shift stage in the old school hall before moving to the village hall in 1958. We generally put on two productions each year, usually in January and May/June plus one-off special evenings.

Membership is open to both adults and children from both inside and outside the village. Most of the actors and technical crew live in the village, have lived here in the past or have some association with Little Gaddesden. This has encouraged a community spirit in the club and is a very important element in its success. The club is very much a part of our local community. This encourages a loyal audience, the majority of which also live locally. However, it is significant that when people from outside the village and its environs attend productions, they always comment on the warm welcome they receive and find that going to the village hall is a rewarding overall experience, particularly when the audience is seated at tables, a feature of our productions past and present. The happy consequence of this is that people come back again and again.
