WWPS has been
entertaining adults and children since
The West Wickham Pantomime
Society has its roots with the Home Guard
who decided in 1945 to stage a Pantomime
in aid of local children's charities.
When the Home Guard was disbanded the
annual pantomime had already become
something of an institution, so the
Society was formed and was bequeathed the
residual funds and equipment.
then it has maintained the tradition of
staging a Pantomime in West Wickham,
supplementing this later with a variety
show in the summer. This has remained the
format of the society's productions each
year. Since its foundation the society
has performed at the Wickham Hall, West Wickham.
So close has our association been that
when the halls were facing financial ruin
the Society mounted a rescue package to
keep the halls functioning. The Wickham
Hall makes continuing improvement to the
facilities for the Society and other hall
users alike. Improvement in our storage
facilities now means all aspects of our
productions are housed under one roof.
