New Members and Panto 2023

We are looking for new members - particularly for the January 2023 Panto! If you are over 16 and fancy giving acting a go, or enjoy dancing and/or singing, why not contact our membership secretary Jo Taylor via

Those considering joining us may be interested in viewing the video below - made during our last staged panto Red Riding Hood, performed in January 2020.


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.

Our upcoming shows have been rescheduled as follows:

The Affairs of Husbands and Wives: September 20-24 at Linslade Middle School

Goldilocks and the Three Bears: January 13-28, Library Theatre

No Dinner for Sinners: March 30 - April 1, Library Theatre 

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