The group was formed in 1956 as the ‘Hampers Green Drama Group’ for residents of Hampers Green, Petworth in West Sussex. To widen the membership base the group was eventually renamed as Petworth Players.
We are a friendly group who welcome new members. Even if you have never performed on stage before you will be welcome to come and read for a part in one of our productions and help is always needed front of house, with music or with set building, props, costumes and other backstage tasks, there is something for everyone no matter what your talents!
If you would like to give it a try, why not come along to one of our rehearsals? We are currently rehearsing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout September, October and November, and would gladly welcome new members. Rehearsal dates and times can vary so contact our Secretary to check when would be best to come along.
Parents are welcome to attend rehearsals with their children (some have then decided to become members themselves!) but junior members are under the supervision of responsible adults whilst at rehearsal in accordance with the Petworth Players Child Protection policy.
In this website we aim to give details of our next performance and sell tickets for our next performance. Several times a year we organise social gatherings and members often arrange to make up a group to support other local amateur dramatic societies by attending their productions.
If you are keen on the theatre then come along and join us, either as a member of the group or a member of the audience.
And bring your friends!

The Band was founded in the nineteenth century when almost every town and village had its own band. It is now one of only a handful of traditional West Sussex village bands to have survived. It leads the Remembrance Day Procession through the streets of the town and plays at many other local events, in addition to two concerts and the Christmas Lights Switch-On.
Further afield the Band regularly appears at the Cowdray Gold Cup Polo, summer fetes and other public and private events. Our President, Lord Egremont, and the National Trust provide a band room above Petworth House Stables (entrance adjacent to Church Lodge) where rehearsals take place every Monday from 7.00 to 8.30pm.
The Band is a friendly and inclusive group and welcomes new brass, woodwind and percussion players of all ages and abilities. Uniforms are provided and the loan of an instrument if required.
Subject to availability the band can undertake public engagements, such as fetes and concerts, also private parties and corporate events.
Please refer to our website for details of how to join or book an engagement.
