BILLESDON DRAMA SOCIETY
CELEBRATES 80 YEARS



This will be a showcase season as we celebrate our 80th season.

So how did it all begin?

Amateur dramatics has been alive and kicking in Billesdon since 1917

when a group of women formed the Billesdon Womenís Institute.

Very soon they were performing plays and eventually persuaded some of

their husbands and men friends to join them.

It was not until 1934 that the Billesdon Drama Society was formed.

The vicarís wife at the time Mrs McCandles, together with Vi Day,

Grace Grocock, Phil Toone and Marjorie Bates were amongst the

stalwarts and to them we owe a debt of gratitude for creating our

vibrant society.

Like the old Windmill Theatre we have never closed!

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over this time as

without an audience we would not exist so, with that in mind ,we

would like you to help us celebrate our 80th year and hope you will

come and enjoy these and our future productions.
