Welcome to the Faringdon Dramatic Society's Website
We hope that you will come and enjoy our productions. We have been entertaining the local community for over half a century and the standard of acting has often been compared to that seen at a professional theatre. The society has been the proud winner of many county and national awards. We are also often complimented on the excellent quality of the stage set, make-up and costumes used in our productions. You may be surprised to hear that all are created specially 'from scratch' for each production by the hard working 'behind the scenes' members of our society.

Exclusive Print Offer
When we came back from Canada, Rey Baecher gave us 10 prints of a picture of The Tithe Barn at Little Coxwell, which he has done from a photograph. Rey is a very talented artist and generously, he wants us to sell the prints and use the profits for FDS. The attached is a photo of the picture, which is about 14 x 12 in size, portrait style and comes unframed. Would anyone like to buy a print at the cost of £12.00 (FDS members £8.00)? Please contact us if you are interested.
