Hadlow Amateur Dramatics

Hadlow Amateur Dramatic Society (HADS). As our title suggests we are an “Am Dram” society based in Hadlow in Kent and have been established for over 30 years. 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 and a “Spring Show”. 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.
