Carradale Drama Group 

Date/Time: Currently "resting"

Venue: Carradale Village Hall

Carradale Drama Club was very active for almost 40 years competing in local festivals in Campbeltown, Ardrishaig, Oban and Arran.  For several years we had enough members to put on 2 plays each year, finishing off the season with a performance in Carradale.  Every one or 2 years we also did a pantomime.  This was great fun and was much appreciated by the local audience. Sadly the club is "resting" just now, but should some younger enthusiastic talent come along, it can be woken up!
