We are run entirely by volunteers and are always keen to welcome new members in both the adult and youth sections. Whether you want to appear on stage or help behind the scenes, there is room for you at Grove Park.
Come and join in the fun!
Our first play of the season Quartet has now finished and we have a busy few months ahead with rehearsals for The Accrington Pals and our annual pantomime Sleeping Beauty. Don’t forget we also have an intimate evening with Only Fools And Horses actor John Challis on the 1st November. All of these productions are on sale NOW so you can either call in at our box office and book your tickets or book online.
The Accrington Pals is a play by Peter Whelan. It is based on the Accrington Pals unit in the First World War and contrasts its life at the front and experiences in the 1916 Battle of the Somme with the women left behind in Accrington. Join us to commemorate the centenary of the Great War with this exceptional play about ordinary people in extraordinary times.
In September we launched a competition on Facebook for someone to win a season ticket for all six of our plays. The lucky winner was Sue Breese and she was delighted to pick up her prize and watch Quartet, she said, “I had a fantastic time thank you and I look forward to the others”. If you want to be in with a chance of winning similar prizes then like us on Facebook to find out about more competitions.
