Plans for the Jubilee festivities are coming on a pace.  Have a look at the Dittsham website  scroll down to diamond jubilee and there you will find a draft programme which will be added to as events are arranged.  If you like to sing why not join in the pageant of words and music which will follow the Sunday lunch feast on the Ham.  There will be a few rehearsals nearer the time.  They are all popular songs that you will probably know.  If you are interested contact Jonathan Watts or 07977536008 or Helen Woodman on 722441 

 Our Ditsum  Players’ chairman and director/producer of  many of our superb productions has put his talents to use for an evening of discovery from Spelt Theatre from Earthdrum.  Written and performed by Mark Drummond ex National Youth Theatre.  “Spelt is theatre that appeals to the heart as compassionate and imaginative as it truly is.”
