Northenden Players can trace their origins back to 1942 when a group of young persons in Northenden founded The Younger Generation and performed their first production - ‘The Rising Generation” by Wyn Weaver and Laura Leycester - on March 23rd.
By the end of the 1940’s the group had renamed themselves Northenden Players.
The early history has been researched and recorded in a booklet by John Wheatley, the chairman - “The Story of the Northenden Players - The First Twenty Years (1942 - 1962)”
In December 2007, after 50 years at Boat Lane the Players relocated to the Northenden Methodist Church Hall in Victoria Road, Northenden.
