The Lynden Players were formed in 1975 by a group of members who met at a Women’s Institute drama group. They wanted a name with a rural feel, and settled on the name ‘Lynden Players'.

We rehearse throughout the year on Mondays at 7.45pm and Wednesdays at 7.30pm at Middleton Cheney Village Hall, which is also Lynden’s home for our performances.

We are very proud of our talented actors and performers, but we are especially grateful for those members who have fantastic creative, technical and practical skills. A successful show needs a huge team of volunteers: the list includes lighting, sound, costumes, props, hair and make up, sets, front of house, catering, marketing, box office, chaperones, stage managers, prompts, producers, directors, musicians, choreographers, writers and actors.

There is also a strong social element to being a member. We organise regular theatre trips, particularly to support other local groups and drama festivals; our quiz team does very well in the monthly pub quiz and while our regular activities have been suspended, we have enjoyed online meetings and activities.
