West Meon Theatre is a community theatre group, founded in 1993 by Mary Dawson. The membership is drawn from the length & breadth of the Meon Valley and beyond,.
The company performs in a wide variety of venues and spaces including, West Meon Village Hall, Meon Hall Meonstoke, Winchester Theatre Royal, the Thomas Lord Pub, churches, barns, tents in gardens and various open-air spaces.
The artistic programme includes plays, musicals, pantomimes, Shakespeare, cabaret evenings, supper theatres, fringe events in pubs and site specific work. WMT has also commissioned and produced new writing.
Over the years the group won various awards at the Daily Echo Curtain Call Awards including, in 2009, the much coveted production of the year for Cider With Rosie, the ensemble piece that was performed in the round in an Indian tent in the gardens of the Thomas Lord.
This is the second time the group has won this award, the last time was in 2003 with Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
2023 sees thirty years of West Meon Theatre which we plan to celebrate in style!
