HINCKLEY LIGHT SWITCH ON 2018
We are so proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Trinity Players this year. How quickly has the time passed since our first chairperson Linda Smith went to visit the vicar to see if it was ok to start a drama group in the church hall. The group has gone from strength to strength with many wonderful productions and acheivements over the years. During this time we have seen many members come and go, we have watched some grow from small children into adults with families of their own now. we have have also sadly seen members pass away, they have all left a lasting impression on us all, which has helped to bond us into the caring family group that we are today.
2018 was a fairytale year for us with our amazing wins at the pantomime alliance awards evening and we are hoping that we can continue that success into 2019. we have some very exciting new projects with the comedy spoof "Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders" in April followed by a 30th anniversary celebration in June comprising of a Murder Mystery event including a buffet supper "who killed the pop star?" the evening will include a potted pantomime performed by our junior players and some comedy sketches and singing to showcase all of our talented members. we will also have our ever popular pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk in December. We are of course nothing without our amazing audiences that have supported us over the years and for that we very much thank you all , We hope you will continue to come to our performances and we will do our very best to entertain you . Heres to the next 30 years ....
The soapbox officially sponsored by Trinity Players has won first place in the junior class at this years Hinckley soap box derby held on July 7th 2019. The winning team comprised of driver Joe Hicks with Darren Bradley and Sefton Winslade providing the muscle for the push starts and Peter Bradley as chief mechanic and cheerleader. This was an especially courageous win, as Joe sustained a heavy collision on his second run causing his soapbox to overturn.
The team first enterered the event 6 years ago in 2014 with push and pray " a coffin shaped soapbox" built by Peter Bradley, Scott Cufflin and Darren Bradley. The soap box has seen many changes both mechanical and cosmetic over the last few years, most notably the steering wheel which really helped things move in the right direction.,it also has had a revamp this year with a more aerodynamic body.
It has also seen its fair share of young drivers and successes including: scott Cufflin, Aiden hicks, Luke catt and Luke Winslade all braving the driving seat and is hoping, all being well, to equal this years success.
