Our next production: coming to Adel in October 2014


In October 2014, we will be staging a new production of Githa Sowerby's 'Rutherford & Son' - a play that was considered a sensation back in 1912, and that retains its power over 100 years later.


Make a note in your diaries - we'll be performing 'Rutherford & Son' from Wednesday 22 to Saturday 25 October at Adel Memorial Hall (7.30pm).


For more information on the play and details of how to book tickets, see Forthcoming Productions.

Adel remembers World War One

At the invitation of the Adel War Memorial Association, on Monday 4 August Adel Players took part in a candlelight presentation of readings to commemorate the centenary of the start of World War One.


Family memories and war poetry featured in the LIGHTS OUT event, one of many that took place around the UK to create a unique national moment of reflection.


For more information on the heavy price paid by the village of Adel in WW1 and the work of local historians to record the fallen in a new booklet, we recommend reading this Yorkshire Post article.
