BLETCHINGLEY PLAYERS TO CLOSE DOWN

At an Extraordinary General Meeting of The Bletchingley Players held on 25th September 2019, it was with great sadness and reluctance that the majority of members voted to close down The Society with immediate effect.

This was due to problems, that will be familiar to many other struggling or closed societies: No-one came forward offering to direct the November production which meant the Players had already cancelled it.  Bletchingley Players had a static and ageing membership and It was increasingly difficult to get enough people involved in stage and set construction as well as front of house and other areas.  Plays became more difficult to cast because of our very small pool of actors and Directors.  It was also difficult to get people to serve on the committee.

 Sadly, after 60 years of dramatic productions in the village, the Bletchingley Players final production of Harvey in 2019 was an excellent production to end on.
