About BATS

BATS is Biggleswade Amateur Theatrical Society. Established in 1984 and based in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, we currently have over 50 active members. We are always looking for new members (especially men) prepared to don the greasepaint!

If actually treading the boards is not your forte, members are also needed to help with the various other activities necessary to ensure “the show goes on”, including make-up, costumes, choreography, scenery production, back stage, front-of-house and even direction!

We usually perform three productions every year, including a pantomime and our productions have covered a wide range of theatrical styles including:

  • Plays
  • Comedies
  • Dramas
  • Musicals
  • Murder Mysteries
  • Pantomimes
  • Variety Shows, Music Hall, etc

We also aim to enter at least one entry each year / 2nd year into the Local Drama Festivals and this year is no exception with our original short play Trammel Net being entered into the welwyn and Cambridge Drama Festivals.

BATS are also available to perform outside shows of 1-2 hours duration – we have music and drama material and murder mysteries available for all occasions! For more information, please use the Contact Form above.

If anything on this website has piqued your interest, we usually meet at the Trinity Methodist Church Hall on Shortmead Street, Biggleswade at 8pm on a Monday. Our contact page has a map, showing our location in Biggleswade.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
