About Us

The Leighton Buzzard Drama Group is a well-established amateur dramatic group, generally performing two or three plays and one pantomime each year in the Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre.

We’ve been in action for many years, in fact 2016 was our 60th year anniversary.

Our productions for 2017 will be:

What We Do

We aim to produce a mix of theatre that will interest all members, from challenging works like those of Harold Pinter to more fun comedies such as Fawlty Towers and ‘Allo ‘Allo.

Recent reviews in the Leighton Buzzard Observer has quoted us as being ‘one of the town’s premier drama groups’ we are proud to be moving from strength to strength with our productions.
