About Us

The Worthy Players is the amateur dramatics group for the Worthies in Winchester, Hampshire. This includes Kings Worthy, Headbourne Worthy, Abbots Worthy and Martyr Worthy.

Formed originally by members of the local Women’s Institute in 1973, the group has since performed over 130 shows including drama, comedy, pantomime, variety and old time music hall. We are made up of members of all ages, many of whom come from much further afield than the Worthies - so we are open to all-comers.

The group meets in the Jubilee Hall, London Road, Kings Worthy (opposite the Volvo garage, near St. Mary’s Church) on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm.

We are always on the lookout for new members, not just to act on stage but also to help with all the many other jobs backstage and front of house. Set building, painting, ticket selling, costume making and advertising are just some of the areas needing lots of effort, while on the dramatic side we need directors, musicians, choreographers and of course, actors! If you can contribute in any way then we would be delighted to welcome you in the Jubilee Hall at any of our meetings.
