You can dip in or out of the programme and join in projects or just get on with your own thing.
We enjoy supporting each other, sharing skills and exploring different techniques. We meet all year with a break over summer and Christmas.

On the Wireless!
Our next production is Vintage Hitchcock – a live radio play. This is a new type of venture for us where we will recreate the atmosphere of a 1940’s Radio theatre with the audience effectively being the audience of a live recording of three short Hitchcock based radio plays (The Lodger, Sabotage and the 39 Steps). Each play will be performed with actors and sound effects technicians weaving their spell live on stage in order to create what would have been broadcast live on the radio in its day. It comes complete with vintage “jingle” commercials, and recreates a daring escape involving a flock of sheep, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of sound effects and musical underscoring.
We believe our production may be the first in the UK and gives the readers of the Woodborough Web a great opportunity to see something a little different whilst having an enjoyable evening out on their doorsteps.
