The Drama Group’s annual Music Hall started in 1983 and was an attempt at the traditional Old Tyme Music Hall style of songs, sketches and singalongs, magic and specialist acts. One of the early shows was to raise money for the current permanent stage in the Memorial Hall. Prior to that we had to put up a distinctly rickety set of boards and supports on which to perform!
Since then Music Hall has raised just over £90,000 and this money has gone to help all sorts of charities and village groups including the Shop, School and Scout hut renewal.
In recent years the format has changed and it is now called “Not the Music Hall” but still has elements of the old, slightly smutty humour, ridiculous sketches, songs, novelty acts and fun. It is always performed in November and many of our sell-out audiences tell us it cheers them up no end and even sets them up for Christmas!
