Chesil Theatre

  • About
    The Chesil Theatre (Winchester Dramatic Society) presents 6 main productions a year, ranging from comedy to classics. We also host visiting companies, organise regular play-readings, new writing events and run a regular playwriting competition, 10x10.

    We have been performing plays for nearly 150 years. We celebrate our 150th Anniversary in November 2013. In fact we are older than the Royal Shakespeare Company, which is a mere 50 years old.

    Since 1966 the Chesil Theatre has been our permanent home - a former 12th century church in Chesil Street. Our medieval building provides an intimate 75-seat studio-style theatre and versatile performance space. We have around 250 members and run two Youth Theatres for 8 to 16 year olds.
