For all the society’s members, this is the annual opportunity to elect the committee and find out how successful the society has been in the past year. It is also a great opportunity for anyone thinking of getting involved to meet the members and find out more about this friendy and fun society.

A number of play reading evenings are also being held by the society for anyone who would like to take part in a fun, informal read through of a selection of comedy scripts. There are two this month, on May 16th and 30th.
