Ledbury Amateur Dramatic Society (LADS) is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.  LADS is the second-oldest voluntary organisation in Ledbury after the Rugby Club.

To mark the occasion our ex-Treasurer Brian Hudson has produced a full-colour 80-page book telling the Society’s remarkable story...

  • How it went from using a WW2 Nissen hut to owning its own purpose-built theatre;
  • The trials and tribulations of leasing premises from the Church Army;
  • How the “legendary” pantomimes began;
  • How the Society might have folded after a disastrous fire.

There is also a complete list of every known LADS production - well over 250 of them!  As well as being a fascinating account of the Society’s development, this volume will be an invaluable reference work in the future.

Orders are being accepted now.  The price is £12.50 up to the end of January 2019, and £14 after that.  Delivery is free in the Ledbury area, or if collected from the theatre.  Postage outside the area is £2 extra.

To place your order, please print out this form, complete it and attach payment, and leave it with bar staff or in the theatre mailbox, or send to 5 Progress Close, Ledbury HR8 2QZ.
