Aldermaston Parish Hall was built in 1897, the ambience of this building, with it’s balcony’d gallery, is ideal for theatre. It conjures up the feeling of the old music halls that were brought back to life when the BBC broadcast “The Good Old Days” from Leeds.

In 1996 the temptation was too great to resist … so a troupe of players once again trod the boards of the Parish Hall to entertain the folks of the Parish.
One of the fun aspects of turning the Parish Hall into a theatre & auditorium is the set building and creating a themed environment for the audience.

‘The Barn’ was built by the owners, Neil & Karen Dignan, in 2011 for the one day blues festival – Blues on the Meadow.
It’s been a real honour for the Players to be given the opportunity to turn this rustic building into a performance space.
