Arts & Drama
The Nomad theatre. Located behind the shops in Bishopsmead Parade, East Horsley, the theatre can be found under the archway between the Goose and the Post Office. The theatre puts on “a wide range of shows from Shakespeare, drama, comedy, musicals to panto. There is a thriving Youth Theatre with classes on Saturdays and Thursdays and their own summer show and studio plays. In addition, Prompt Corner lunches are held every third Wednesday, where you can enjoy a two course meal and listen to local speakers talk on an endless range of subjects.” You can get involved to perform, volunteer for set building, costume & make-up, front-of-house and the bar – or just come along to meet new people!

The Whips. “The West Horsley Independent Players (The Whips) were formed back in 1948, originally as the Drama section of the local W.I. The Whips stage two shows per year and every two years, the hugely popular pantomime. There are also two separate groups, The Young Whips and Whippets, for teenagers (13-17 years) and younger children (7-12 years). Rehearsals are held within Horsley and performances are held in the West Horsley Village Hall. ”
The Arts Society was founded in 1968 to “foster knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the arts.” There are two local groups, both of which meet at East Horsley village hall.
