…to everybody who supported us with ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’. After 3 years of planning, 18 months of lockdowns, Zoom rehearsals and social distancing, closely followed by the closure of Bishopstoke Memorial Hall, it was so good to be back on stage and hear the laughter and applause from three appreciative audiences. We’re back!!!
We’re collecting copies of all our old programmes since we were founded in 1947. We’re almost there but are missing programmes from six plays. We’d love to complete the set so if you know of any of these old programmes from Bishopstoke YLU Players or Bishopstoke Young Leaguers Union (our old names) – maybe found lurking during a house clearance? – please do get in touch as we’d love to make a copy:
- 1948 ‘Lights Out at Eleven’
- 1953 ‘Family Drama’
- 1955 ‘Happy Days’
- 1957 ‘Half Holiday’
- 1962 ‘A Basinful of the Briny’
- 1964 ‘Home for Christmas’
All the programmes we do have, along with a myriad of photos, posters and more, can be found in our Past Productions gallery. Please do have a browse!
Bishopstoke Players is an amateur drama group based near Eastleigh, Hampshire. We present three full-length plays each year, generally in January, May and September, and perform in one-act drama festivals throughout the south.
We were founded in 1947 to raise money for Action for Children and since then have presented over 200 dramas, comedies and pantomimes, raising thousands of pounds for charity.
