Regrettably, we have made the hard decision to cancel this year’s Wells Theatre Festival, owing to the Coronavirus pandemic and the need for all of us to help in preventing further spread of the disease. We are hoping to continue rehearsing the two Community productions, Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ and Jacqueline Wilson’s ‘Hetty Feather’, in the hope that these may be performed in due course. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with developments. Thank you for your support.
