Rehearsals for "The Vicar Of Dibley" began in February 2020 and a two full years they recommenced, albeit with some alterations to the cast due to changing circumstances following the pandemic.

A spokesperson for the society said: “With ‘a vicar with a bob and a bosom’, Jim Trott with his ‘No, no, no, no, no’s’, Letitia Cropley serving her ‘plain cakes with a hint of liver’, dipsey Alice Tinker and her love interest Hugo Horton, his bumptious father David, Owen Newitt and his cows, and Frank Pickle taking all this down in his ‘minute book’, you are sure of an interesting and belly-laughing evening.”

Tickets can be booked via the society’s ticket secretary Judith Morris, who is also directing the show, by calling 07729 360133.
