About us

The Hayes Players was established in 1933 by Josiah Merrill, and regularly presented plays in Hayes Village Hall between March 1934 and February 2020.

Our productions, two to four a year, ranged between comedies, farces, serious plays and melodrama, interposed with an occasional musical play, revue or pantomime.

The Hayes Players won many awards in the Kent Drama Association and Bromley Theatre Guild play festivals.

Due to a declining active membership and difficulties associated with the Covid outbreak, the decision was made to discontinue our activities and the society has now been dissolved.

As part of our dissolution we sold our rehearsal studio for much more than we expected, which enabled us to make grants and donations totalling £346,000 to 32 local drama societies and organisations, 8 local schools (for drama and performing arts activities), 5 local community charities and the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. Most of our technical equipment, staging, costumes, furniture and properties was given to local drama organisations and schools.
