17 August

The Public Hall will be reopening soon, with special measures to control the spread of Covid-19. This means that we will be able to hold our workshop in the Hall after all BUT we need to delay until 17 August and numbers will be strictly limited. Tosh is already in touch with those who would like to join us for what will be a very different workshop week.


7:00 pm
Main Hall

We hope to resume in September after the Summer Holidays.
We have cleared our waiting list and have a few spaces for new members.
Contact Tosh if you are interested in joining.


Thanks to Coronavirus, YTG is on hold until further notice.
Please watch our Facebook page for the latest news


Thanks to Covid-19 .........
Plays for Pleasure is on hold until further notice.


Thanks to coronavirus, we are postponing our AGM until it's all over and we are able to meet again.


But GADS will still be here, albeit over 2 metres away and sometimes in virtual reality.
To maintain continuity, our Committee members have agreed to keep their posts until we can hold an AGM.
Membership is usually renewed after the AGM,
so those of you who are currently members will continue to be members until the AGM, whenever that is.


We have been busy looking at scripts for our next panto and we have found a really good one - "Beauty and the Beast" from Tom Whalley Pantomimes.
Tom wrote Alice in Wonderland (Jan 2019) so that's a great start.
Please let the coronavirus restrictions be over in time for rehearsals to begin on 3 November.
Watch out for the audition dates if you want to get involved.


8 May

The VE day celebrations in Gosforth have been postponed until 2021, but GADS will still be there to support the event.
We have prepared a short (~15 minute) period drama based on the tales and memories of local residents.


The play is about the reminiscences of an old lady talking about her experiences during WW2. Although fictitious, it is based on the recollections of several of our residents in Gosforth. We need one cast member to play the lady's son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter - so male or female between 25 and 70 ish. This is a fairly small but important part with not many lines. We will rehearse in March / April whenever the cast are available, so no set dates or times. If you are interested, please contact Karen Polmear by email or phone (28392).


23 July

Postponed from 2020


The Ashton Group's Theatre Factory Apprentices will be returning to Gosforth for their annual visit with a new play 'After Rain' or 'The Musician, the Bestie, the Mum and his Lover (and how they all got tangled up)'.


GADS would like to thank these organisations for helping to fund our new stage lights and controls
