Heritage Open Day

11th September 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Davenham Players Theatre will open its doors and invite you backstage, onstage and upstage for tea, cakes & stories. Explore our costume room, watch a rehearsal or have a natter about times gone by.

This theatre group recently discovered that their beloved building started life as a Victorian school and was even the home to a young family.
Having completed an ambitious extension and refurbish during the last 2 years, the Players are thrilled to officially open their doors again.

On 11th September there will be an afternoon to take a taste of life within the building, from current projects & groups, to tales of the past.
And as with most get togethers at 59 Church Street, there will be cake!

Sit amongst our Writer’s Group, join in with a Play Reading, explore our Costume Room or listen to our Lockdown Podcast in the Props Room.

No booking required
