We are not going to risk re-starting YTG until the schools have settled back and the latest Covid increases come to an end. Sadly, this won't be until after Christmas, but existing members will be contacted before we resume.


See the Youth Theatre Group page for more details.
If you have any questions in the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch.  And ...

Please watch here and our Facebook page for the latest news



Rehearsing and preparing within the current rules is just not practical, so very reluctantly we have decided to cancel our panto for January 2021.

However, we think we have a great script so will hold it over for a year.



Thanks to Covid-19 .........
Plays for Pleasure is on hold until further notice.
Almost certainly until the new year.



Thanks to coronavirus, we postponed our 2020 AGM.
Hopefully we will be back to normal by May 2021.


To maintain continuity, our Committee members agreed to keep their posts from May 2020, for another year if necessary.
Membership is usually renewed after the AGM,
All existing memberships renewed automatically for another year and with no charge.

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)'.


Week beginning
Monday 2 Aug

Yes - we have booked the dates already so you can get it in your diary.
Hopefully Covid-19 won't disrupt this one quite so much and we can get back to our usual numbers.



Beauty and The Beast is by Tom Whalley, who wrote Alice in Wonderland (Jan 2019) so that's a great start.

Hopefully Covid will be long behind us by the time we start rehearsing this one.


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