We are an amateur dramatic society with an interest in all things theatrical - be it acting, play reading, workshops, theatre trips or just plain socialising.
Obviously and, as you would no doubt expect, in order to keep all of us and our audiences safe we have taken the decision to postpone all our activities for the moment. 'Relative Values' is on hold, and 'Twelfth Night' has been postponed from the summer.
Due to this schedule there will unfortunately be no Panto this year but – don’t worry we’ll be up and running again by 2022 – oh yes we will!

### PLAYERS' QUIZ 2020 - HERE! ###
Bampton Players on YouTube! See the Mummers Play (2017 at Bampton Charter Fair) - here
The Players generally stage several productions every year:
The annual pantomime in February (oh yes it is!), spring drama in May, and a play in October. Also in October the Players perform a traditional Mummers' Play at Bampton Charter Fair. Recently we have had an open-air Shakespearean production in the summer, and plans are unfolding for just such an event in 2020.
***We have an archive of photographs of past productions stretching back to 2005 - available HERE.
We welcome new members - our aim is to encourage live performance in Bampton so we need support, actors and non actors alike. Membership is £10.00 per year for adults, £2.00 for under-18s.
Bampton Players were formed in 1976, and are a registered charity (No. 277774).
