So who are we? ...

Since its formation in 1923 the Society has developed over the years from small beginnings to becoming arguably one of the finest Amateur Dramatic Societies in the South West.

Could our founder members ever have envisaged such success? Not only the well received performances and incredible reviews, but also the manner in which it has progressed in its presentation of the many Musicals, Plays, Cabarets and Youth productions.

BYG - The Young Generation

Barnstaple Young Generation (or BYG as we know it) is the talented youth arm of our society. They have been performing excellent productions to delighted audiences for years, with their numbers growing along with local interest in getting involved.

But where did it all start?

We're glad you asked...

Past Productions

Barnstaple Musical Comedy & Dramatic Society has been around since 1923, and in the ensuing years has staged a large number of hugely successful shows.
