The Iver Heath Drama Club was established in 1948 by John Hargreaves and members of the local Women's Institute.
Iver Heath is an interesting community: in Wood Lane there are mansions worth over £1 million and yet there are people living in energy and food poverty on benefits just 10 minutes walk away. At IHDC, everyone is equal and it is fantastic to see children & adults from accross the spectrum of wealth, culture, skillset and ability work together.
At the moment, we have over 40 members aged between 6 and 80 from a range of abilities, skills and disabilities. We receive no government or council funding, just surviving on donations and profits from performances. The club played a vital role in the building of the current Iver Heath Village Hall (SL0 0DA) which we call home and to this day maintains the stage lights and stage for the club, hall and other hirers to use. The club charges a £2 a week membership fee and has the lowest pantomime ticket prices in our region.
During the summer our club splits into three teams; Youth, Teens and Adults – to produce three shows and encourage the most out of everyone in our club. Then in Autumn/Winter we all come together to work on our pantomime. In 2014 over 550 people saw our panto over the 6 performances.
We are looking for new adult members (aged 20+) of all ages and abilities on and off stage. We currently have a waiting list for Children and Teenagers.
