About the Mawdesley Amateur Dramatics Society (MADS)

MADS is a well established drama group based at Mawdesley Village Hall in the picturesque village of Mawdesley in Lancashire.

The society was created in the early 1970s by members of the local WI. In 1974 after the official opening of the new Mawdesley Village Hall local resident and WI President Jane Forrest was asked to produce a pantomime. This production of Cinderella was so successful that members of the cast decided to form a drama society and Mawdesley Amateur Dramatics Society was born.


MADS meets on a Wednesday evening in Mawdesley Village Hall at 7.45pm. All newcomers are most welcome – the annual subscription is small and all interests are catered for – acting, stage, costume, painting, props, lighting, etc.

We also organise social events throughout the year including theatre trips, Christmas parties as well as our popular annual Oscar Night for members and their family and friends!
