Hadleigh Amateur Dramatic Society

Hadleigh Amateur Dramatic Society is based in Hadleigh Suffolk UK


We have been running since 1920 and in May 2014 a new chairman was elected Trevor Clarke to revamp the group with a new committee.


HADS is an amateur dramatic society based in Hadleigh that produces a wide range of productions and events for the local community, ranging from comedies and traditional pantomimes, to talent contests and more serious plays. We welcome members of all ages, as well as co-productions with other dramatic groups, to allow us to bring the best of Suffolk’s drama scene into Hadleigh.


Our come back show 'The Hadleigh Cinderella' was a massive success last January 2015. The turn out for the Panto was overwelming showing that Hadleigh needs and deserves to be entertained for years to come. We are now putting on regular events and of course our main event the yearly panto.


We would like to take the opportunity to thank all those who were involved and especially our local shops who kindly put our posters in their windows. This shows you the support our local community gives and wanting for us to be a success for years to come. Again we thankyou for your overwelming support. Support your local shops in Hadleigh as they have done for us.


Our aim is to put on shows and entertain to all ages. Lets get Hadleigh together to bring HADS to 100 years and beyond!
