What Westoning Players do...
We meet weekly on a Thursday evening
We perform 2 or so shows a year, at Westoning Village Hall (Church Rd) and have lots of fun doing them.
We present all our shows for our local community audience, and their content reflects their wish to be entertained.
We also participate in Village events. Like the Village church fete..
..... come on down .... and see for yourself....
We'll make you WELCOME!

Westoning Players Chairman's Letter - August 2015
First of all I would like to welcome Clare Petts to the Society. I hope she enjoys being with Westoning Players. She
had a baptism of fire when she came to our annual Shed Clear. We were all very good and took four car loads of
stuff to the tip with a great deal of help from Joyce! The shed leans towards the fence now!!
Jennie organised a walk from her house in Silsoe to The Jolly Coopers on a lovely evening in June. We had a
beverage and walked back listening to the boring song of the Redstart.Later that month we spent a very enjoyable
afternoon at the Big Picnic in Westoning. The weather was lovely. We dressed up in pantomime costumes and
handed out a quiz for people to complete, the theme being “things connected with pantomimes”. Although many
folk took a sheet and seemed to be pouring over the questions, only three were returned so it wasn't difficult to
choose the winners.
At the end of July we had a very nice meal at Spice even though we had to put our clothes in our washing
machines when we got home. (Didn’t fancy the smell of curry as a perfume!)
The Quiz evening went extremely well; we had sixty people there which was excellent. Patricia Hodges and her
husband Neil organise a very good quiz and we made £200 for Help for Heroes. Thank you to everyone who
helped prepare the supper and the Hall ready for the Quiz.
We now have a break during August and meet again at the Annual General Meeting on 3rd September. There will be
light refreshments to entice you to come along … well a few crisps! We then start rehearsing for “Buttons” on 10
September (see cast details etc below)
Enjoy the rest of the summer and look forward to seeing you all in September.
Best wishes Nita
|REHEARSALS for Buttons
There will be rehearsals each Monday and Thursday evening from
