Welcome to Little Gaddesden Drama Club

What’s On

extraordinary general meeting

Tuesday 21 September 2021, 8:00pm
Little Gaddesden Village Hall Committee Room (round the back)

The committee has decided to convene a short General Meeting of Little Gaddesden Drama Club principally in order to deal with the administrative fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic, during which two of our Annual General Meetings were not held at the usual time of year. As well as sweeping up a few other admin matters, the meeting will also give us the chance to review what has been happening and to share our tentative plans for resuming productions and generally getting back to some sort of normaility.

Click here to see the full agenda as well as the text of the proposed resolutions.  Also included is a subscription payment form;  please note that participation at the EGM is dependent on payment of subscriptions (a modest £5 per adult, £10 per family or £1 per youngster under 18).  You can either send payment electronically or bring it along to the EGM – or you can even send a cheque (remember them?)

radio play

WIXIT!‘ by Trisha Wood, performed by members of Little Gaddesden Drama Club

WIXIT! is the sixth play in the Extraordinary Women series of short radio plays written by Trisha Wood. In it the ladies of Great Titley Women’s Institute (WI) bow to pressure from one of their members and decide to hold a referendum on whether to leave the National organisation. To the committee’s surprise there is a yes vote (52-48%) which leaves them with some uncomfortable choices.

Listen now!

For those of you who are not familiar with the earlier plays, you can find them here and for a little more information on the formidable characters that make up the committee of this local WI click here.
