Bradwell Centenary Players have been going for many years. Past productions include Dick Whittington, Bradda Knights, Jack and the Beanstalk, Mother Goose, Cinderella, Aladdin, Hickory Dickory Dock and Puss in Boots.

The players are always looking for fresh faces to join the ‘old’ ones both on and off stage. This friendly community group meets for practices, social events and activities. For further information email: [email protected]
