2015 11 Round & Round the Garden - Group on the set 17.JPG


We are the Holt Players, a friendly drama society based in the beautiful village of Holt in Wiltshire, in the southwest of England.


Holt Players (formerly the Holt Dramatic Society) has been in existence for over 50 years, but we are still as fresh as ever. After a two-year lull, we have bounced back with a new committee, new ideas, and a new name that reflects our wider activities.


There’s a lot of energy and enthusiasm in and around the Players, building on all the good work that has gone on before. Now we are looking at music as well as drama, family entertainment and social events too.


If you have ever wanted to be involved with a show – in any capacity – then Holt Players is for you......


Amateur theatre is a great way to get involved with the performing arts.  Your interest may be in acting on stage, or perhaps working behind the scenes on stage management, publicity or set building, helping with make-up, wardrobe or props.  Or you may wish to help with arranging refreshments for rehearsals, programme selling or behind the bar for productions, or any of the other jobs which are needed to make the Players tick.


We are always keen to find new members of all ages, skills and backgrounds.

 If you are interested in joining an open and welcoming society, get in touch via our Contact Page, and let us persuade you to take up one of the most rewarding hobbies a person can have.


Our productions are usually staged in Holt Village Hall, but also occasionally in the open-air in beautiful settings such as The Courts National Trust gardens, Phyllis Cottage and The Glove Factory.
