After show party – open to members 29th Nov

If you’re a member or have previously been a member of the Chelford Players we would like to invite you to an after show party at Chelford Village Hall on 29th November.

The performance will finish at approximately 10pm. Please join us in the bar for a few drinks and nibbles.

It would be great if you could bring some food to share, but it’s not mandatory. We would just love to see you!
