We were happy to assist 1st Malmesbury (King Athelstan) Scouts, along with Jack Ranger-Walsh, by providing lighting equipment and expertise for Jack's charity magic show, held in St Mary's Hall on Saturday 11 May. Jack was raising money for the Scouts and also the RNLI.

We will be acknowledging the 200th anniversary of the founding of the RNLI during our revue – A Trip Down Memory Lane.

We are lucky enough to have our own drama studio...


It all began in 1938 when a Malmesbury boy had the idea of setting up a dramatic society...

We perform Revues, Pantos and Plays.
