Pateley Bridge Dramatic Society (PBDS) is a small amateur company based in our own delightful theatre, The Playhouse in Pateley Bridge at the heart of Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dales.



We present three to four of our own productions each year, and invariably receive enthusiastic and positive feedback from our audiences (check the review & feedback sections of our recent plays in the Past Productions section). The most often voiced comment is that we frequently approach and often exceed professional standards. We cover most of the theatrical canon, from Pantomime to Shakespeare, from Mediaeval Mystery Plays to ‘potboilers’.


Find out more about our history, our past productions, our delightful theatre, or our future productions by navigating the site using the buttons on the left of the screen. Please get in touch with any queries or any comments on any of our productions, or any feedback - good, bad or indifferent - about the website.

We hope to gradually increase the information about our past productions over the next few months - so please be patient if one of your favourites isn't there yet.

And please come and see us soon!
