Hadlow Amateur Dramatics
Hadlow Amateur Dramatic Society (HADS). As our title suggests we are an “Am Dram” society based in Hadlow in Kent. We have been established for over 30 years, with our first production being a pantomime in the local school hall. We have since grown to produce a variety of shows, ranging from Old Time Musical to Variety Shows and Comedy Plays to Sketch Shows. Every year we run a pantomime during early January and a “Spring Show” in May. We are incredibly passionate about bringing theatre to Hadlow, Tonbridge and the local areas. All our shows play at Hadlow Village Hall, but we also tour with our Murder Mystery Evenings, for which we are available for hire.
We meet most Mondays at Hadlow Village Hall.
