KIPPAX DRAMATIC SOCIETY
As our regular patrons will be aware, our November production is always a full-length play, with our Murder Mysteries taking place in April. This year, however, it is going to be rather different.
The committee organising the events to mark the centenary of the Armistice had asked if we could participate in any way; and although we were keen to be involved, we realised that there was no way that we could mount a full-length play and do a separate show for the Armistice weekend as the timings clashed.
Then one of our members had a light bulb moment!
In 2014 we presented a murder mystery called ‘Invitation to a Murder’ which was set during WWII. Why not adapt this, and set it during WWI? And that’s what we decided to do. (You may recognise many of the characters, but the murderer - and possibly the motive - will be completely different). This will be a specific production just for this event and will not be taken to any other venue.
At our AGM earlier this year we had decided that owing to rising production costs we would have to increase ticket prices for our murder mysteries from ten pounds to twelve pounds. In the case of this production however, it will be our privilege to donate this increase to the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity. This means that for every ticket sold, two pounds will go to this worthy cause.
As always, we hope that both audiences and cast have an enjoyable fun evening, whilst never forgetting the debt we owe those men and women, past and present, whose sacrifices secured our present freedoms.

At Kippax Welfare we have a memorial day on May Bank Holiday Sunday. A team of Under 30's plays a team of Over 30's which as you can imagine can be very entertaining. This memorial was introduced to remember one of Kippax welfare's Open Age players, Mr Phil Whiteside. It has now grown as a memorial to include other Kippax Rugby players, committee members and club members, including
Robert Shackleton, John Henshaw, Adrian Waters, Ian Battye, Graham Britten, Joe Armitage and Lyndsey Rudge.
Kippax Sports and Social Club is a charitable organisation, which without the support of its many volunteers and the kind sponsorship of local businesses, would be unable to continue and thus none of the above would be possible.
