A brief history of Headley Theatre Club . . .
Home pagePast PerformancesOriginal ConstitutionLatest ConstitutionReviewsList of Press Cuttings 1985-1992DVDs

The Headley Pageant of 1951

A village pageant was organised in 1951 to celebrate the Festival of Britain.
The success of this led directly to a second pageant in 1953 celebrating the Queen's Coronation, and also to the formation of Headley Theatre Club in 1952.

Objects of the Club

The prime object of the Club, as stated in our Original Constitution, is "To unite the village in good fellowship", and this we still strive to do.

What's in a name?

There was much criticism voiced at the time about the choice of name for this organisation – it was thought by some that the term 'Theatre Club' sounded too exclusive for a village amateur dramatic society . . . but it stuck.
