The Kings Langley Players were established in 1925 by local theatre buff John Kingston, performing at first in the then village hall (the still standing old Church House).
In 1950 Kingston led his troops to their new home, the spacious, newly-built Kings Langley Community Centre (with a sizeable and permanent stage plus up-to-date technical facilities).
Moving forward to the 1970’s our members built out very own studio space in the heart of Kings Langley, that we still use to this day to build our sets and to store our extensive wardrobe, collection of props and furniture.
We now perform 4 shows each year including a Pantomime/Christmas show and hold regular social events throughout the year.
We hire out props and furniture to other theatre groups as well. There are too many items to list in detail, but we can tell you that we have: Vintage suitcases, telephones, radios, books, glasses and crockery. Chairs, tables, chaise-longues, a wheelchair, suit of armour and armless greek statue! Pantomime props, baskets, paper flowers and some ‘Allo Allo’ props (including the paintings of the fallen Madonna with the big….). Plus much, much more. If you are interested in hiring anything, please email us at email@example.com
The Kings Langley Players Golf Society play monthly from March – November, with the intention of playing as many different golf courses as possible. The society is open to all Members and their friends. We have an annual Challenge Day, raising funds for the KLP.
We are lucky enough to have an extensive collection of costumes which we also hire out to other groups and the public. Our studio is run by volunteers, and there is generally someone there on a Sunday morning from 10:30am – 12:00. Please email us to make an appointment.
Every September we hold our annual Jumble Sale at the Community Centre. We combine our Jumble with an annual clear out from our costume studio – so you never know what vintage bargains you might find! Keep your eyes peeled for details of our next event.
