The Accrington Pals by Peter Whelan

Autumn Production by Chinnor Players 

Accrington during 1914-16. The "Pals" are the men from the local volunteer battalion who march high-spiritedly off to the Great War with their experiences in the trenches contrasted with those of the women left behind. At times funny, at times sad, it paints a moving and powerful picture of the changes in civilian life during wartime.

Chinnor Players

Hello and welcome to The Chinnor Players website. Chinnor Players are a vibrant and successful amateur dramatics group, which was formed in 1965 by Margaret Knight.

We put on 3 productions each year, a play in May and October and our Pantomime, which takes place in January in our local Village Hall. Over the last couple of years, we have also performed Christmas shows for the Wine Circle and W.I groups.
Chinnor Players relies on many volunteers to keep our group going and we are always on the lookout for new members. So if you are interested in being on the stage, helping backstage or front of house, please get in touch.
On this website, you'll be able to catch up on all the latest news from The Players, see reviews of past productions and previews of future ones, "Meet the Committee" as well as purchasing tickets.
Thank you for checking out our website.
