Halstead Players was re-formed in 1968 as the St.Margaret’s Players, because of our old connection with St.Margaret’s Church. In fact, the original group was set up by an earlier Rector of the church, Rev. Nowell Wood.
We changed our name to Halstead Players in the early 1990’s and became a fully fledged charity, and have been performing in the village ever since.
From time to time we take part in the parades at Knockholt Carnival to raise money for charity. We also hold a BBQ for members every year (usually in August) and will be holding regular get-togethers for members at lunchtime on the first Sunday every month.
Our Next Production
Join us for a winter wonderland adventure as Mother Goose seeks to find her magical snow goose, Heidi. But will she be foiled by the evil troll, Smorg?
Or the wicked Baron Von Rumpensmakka and his henchman, Gonk?
This is the Scandi panto €“ packed full of laughs, songs and Northern magic!

We normally put on 2 separate productions each year, and alternate between straight plays (either comedies or something more serious), revues (for which we are famous) and pantomimes.
Our last production was “Hotel Mystere”, a comedy-thriller involving inept hotel staff and a Russian mafioso involved in money laundering.
