2019 - foreword from the chair

"A big welcome to our new members, and all of you to our website."


2019 has begun with a return to the village hall in early March as The Papplewick Players Presenteth Romeo and Juliet on Radio Lavenham.

This has been written for us by the incredibly talented Nick Paley, and we are all enjoying the humour that is unfolding. Please come with a picnic on either Friday 1st or Saturday 2nd March and watch The Papplewick Players farce unfold.


The bar will be open from 6:45 PM each evening and tickets are available either by email at or at either the Village Hall or bakery in Lavenham.

We hope to see you there.

Louise Harrison


Louise joined Lavenham Players in 2016 and made her debut playing Maggie Howard in the thriller Suddenly at Home, by Francis Durbridge. Louise is more used to life in the board room, but has found a gift for drama, and enjoyed the experience so much that she has now become the chair of the committee of the emergent group.

Jacqueline Cooper Clarke


Jacqueline has been performing on and off in Lavenham Players' productions since her debut with the group in 2010 in the first production of Habeas Corpus (Heavenly Body). Jacqueline has always been a supported of the group since the beginning, and has now taken up the mantle of the Treasurer on the new committee for 2017-2018.
