Wilstead Players’ Newsletter


The members of the cast of ‘The Lady Vanishes’ have spent the month of August busily learning lines ready for the return to regular rehearsals in the Village Hall until the performances on Friday and Saturday the 18th and 19th October.  The Box Office at 14 Armstrong Close – telephone Bedford 740782 – will open on Wednesday, the 9th October.  Flyers are to be inserted in the next Wilstead Newsletter and you may make ticket orders, with money enclosed, using the form on the back of the flyer and delivered to the Box Office.  You do not necessarily need a booking form, just telephone the Box Office.


Congratulations must go to our Director Alice Grandidge who gave birth to Sophie on Sunday the 4th August and weighing in at 7lbs 5ozs.  We are now in the capable hands of Jez Knowles who has taken over the reins as Director.


Wilstead Young Players will have their first meeting after the summer break on Thursday, the 12th September from 6.00 pm.  Again, these sessions will be held in Lakeview Village Hall, Wixams and there may be a few places available to newcomers.  Further details can be obtained from Charlotte Minards on 07886 695 151 or from Pete Tanswell on 07522 587 037.


Pete Tanswell, a founder Member of Wilstead Players, stood down from the Committee at the Annual General Meeting this year.  In recognition for his contribution to the Society over the years – for services rendered - he was made an Honorary Patron by the Committee.
