Welcome to the official website of the Weston and Lois Weedon Drama Group

We are an amateur dramatic group based in the south Northamptonshire villages of Weston, Lois Weedon and Wappenham. We staged our first production, the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk, in early 1999. We now produce a winter pantomime, a more traditional play during the summer and a selection of one-off events including murder mystery evenings.

In 2011 we joined forces with the Helmdon Bridge Players and the Eydon Players to hold the first South Northamptonshire Drama Festival, an evening of one-act plays. The festival has taken a break for the past couple of years but we're planning to hold the next one in 2019. For more information about the festival, please visit the South Northamptonshire Drama Festival pages of this website.

Our last production was Murder in Play, which we staged in September 2018.

Our current production is a murder mystery 'Act of Union' by Adam Stokes. We performed this on 6 September in the Lois Weedon Village Hall and by popular demand we will be repeating it in Wappenham village hall on Saturday 7 December.

You are invited to the wedding reception of Gary Sponge and his new wife, Victoria. Just like every other wedding there's a fair bit of tension. For starters, Victoria's mother Virginia disapproves of her new husband. And she may have cause to be justified because Gary appears to have a bit of  a murky past; just who is the mystery guest at the reception? Tensions simmer with the hors d'ouevres and, when one of the party is found murdered, the guests are asked to turn sleuth to find out whodunnit.

The evening starts at 7.15 pm for 7.30 and tickets are £12 to include the wedding buffet and a pud - bring your own drinks to toast the happy couple. For ticket information contact:
