Could you paint scenery?

Know anything about lights or sound?

Want to produce plays, revues or pantos?

Would you like to prompt?

Can you make costumes?

Then why not join the Athelstan Players!

Our next production will be the Carnival Revue on 1, 2, and 3 August. Rehearsals will begin at the start of May but we will not be 'resting' until then, far from it. We will be giving our studio a much needed face lift and actively seeking new members. See below for details.

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.

Colored Theatre Lights


To be advised



We are looking for singers and dancers for the Revue but not only performers, we are also on the look out for supporting team members such as props, costume, sets, stage management. In March we will be holding 'Open to the Public' events, to showcase what we do, answer questions and highlight the various roles within the society. Look out for details closer to the time.

If you can't wait until March, then contact Hay, our Secretary, now at

We look forward to meeting you.
