The Grimsasrgh Players do not primarily play in Grimsargh! We used to, but space and other restrictions caused us to move to the Preston Playhouse.
However, we do sometimes put on plays in the Village Hall and have often supported both the Hall and local groups with fund-raising events. We also use the Hall regularly for rehearsals and group meetings.
Latest Production in Grimsargh Village Hall:

"Village Wooing" was another great production for GP, again directed by Mary Jones in the 21st One-Act Festival. This charmed a Grimsargh audience at the Village Hall last December.
