About Us

Bishopstoke Players is a drama group based near Eastleigh in Hampshire, UK. We were formed in 1947 to raise money for what was then the National Children’s Home (now Action for Children). Fast forward 70 years and we’ve presented over 200 dramas, comedies and pantomimes, raising thousands of pounds for charity.

We perform three shows a year in Bishopstoke and regularly take part in one-act Drama Festivals across southern England. A thriving member of the local drama community, we regularly receive awards and nominations for our work.

In 2005 we were delighted and honoured to be awarded the Stephenson Award by National Children’s Home (now Action for Children) for our charity work.
