Theatre Group

West Camel Theatre Group (also know as the Little Barn Theatre Group)

The philosophy behind the West Camel Theatre Group is inclusivity as captured on the back of the Sinbad the Sailor pantomime programme in 1998:
‘The group welcomes members of all ages from this and neighbouring Parishes regardless of talent or experience. No auditions are held, if you want to be in a production, or part of the production team, you are in. You can give it a try and drop out if not enjoying yourself or add your own contribution to productions as they develop.’
