Sodbury Players was founded in 1946 in Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire. In 2016 we celebrated our 70th anniversary. We are affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) and are members of Avon Association of Drama (AAD).
We currently perform 3 main productions each year being a pantomime in January, a spring production in May and an autumn production in September. In addition to this we enter several one act plays (adult & youth) into the All England One Act Play Festival each year which starts in February. We have a thriving youth group (SPYS) who also enter the One Act Play Festival and have their own production in July.
