Welcome to Leighton Buzzard Drama Group


Following our very successful and well-attended production of 'The Anniversary' in April, the group is looking forward to further productions in 2022 despite receiving unwelcome news for the Library Theatre, as follows: 

On 8th April 2022 we received notification from Central Beds Council that all LBDG Bookings had been cancelled until at least October 2022 because of staff shortages at the theatre. Despite our representations to the theatre, including the offer of volunteer staff, the decision by CBC remains in place. We have, however, been given written assurances that the Panto will go ahead in the theatre in January 2023.

While we continue to attempt to have this decision reversed, the current plan for our upcoming shows is therefore as follows:

No Dinner for Sinners: Postponed until March/April 2023

The Time Crystals (Children's Show): Under review 

The Affairs of Husbands and Wives: To be performed in September as planned but at an alternative local location

The Panto: To be performed as planned in the Library Theatre in January 2023

New Members

We are looking for new members - particularly for the January 2023 Panto! If you fancy giving acting a go, or enjoy dancing and/or singing, why not contact our membership secretary Jo Taylor via membership.lbdg@gmail.com
