Over the years membership waned and eventually after about fifteen years the last few stalwarts decided to call it a day. However, after a short interlude a new group was formed ‘The Avonside Arts Group’ who performed plays, music halls, festival plays and gave arts and poetry displays. Sadly after a very short time this company folded due to lack of membership. Again, just like the phoenix, and three enthusiastic performers, the present ‘Barford Drama Group’ raised from the ashes with a renewed vigour.
Barford Drama Group has now been entertaining our audiences and ourselves for many years with the help of our loyal friends who have supported us so well over the years. Over the years we have raised over £96,000 for charity, donating to 45 different causes. Barford Drama Group continues to develop and find challenging plays to excite, stimulate and entertain, and always welcomes new members to act, direct, or help out with the technical stuff or backstage. No need for any experience, just enthusiasm and a willingness to join in.
