MAR­KET THE­ATRE, LEDBURY

Evergreen - - News -

It was pleas­ing to hear about the Ledbury Ama­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety in Here­ford­shire, ( LADS for short), who man­aged to raise enough funds to build the first the­atre of the new mil­len­nium. Dat­ing back to 1938 they per­formed in a POW camp be­fore mov­ing in 1950 to the Church Room, which they suc­cess­fully ren­o­vated.

Their new pur­pose- built the­atre, how­ever, seats 128 with wheel­chair ac­cess, foyer, bar, dressing rooms and back­stage stor­age with vol­un­teers run­ning a wide range of per­form­ing arts with fa­cil­i­ties also open to schools and in­de­pen­dent groups.

Self- fi­nanc­ing, the en­ter­prise is to be con­grat­u­lated on its role within the lo­cal com­mu­nity and I look for­ward to hear­ing about other lo­cal ama­teur dra­matic so­ci­eties.
