The Salterton
Our Latest Production
Outside Edge


There is a long tradition of successful amateur dramatics at Budleigh Salterton. Since the group was founded in 1938, it has gone from strength to strength, finally acquiring its own theatre - the Salterton Playhouse - in 1970. The Playhouse is a large wooden building set next to the stream in Meadow Lane, and offers raked seating and full facilities for approximately 80 patrons.

Although the Club is relatively small, levels of enthusiasm and commitment are very high indeed. As a result, we are currently able to stage four plays a year, with each production running for six performances - Monday to Friday evening and a Saturday matinee.

Well done to the The Salterton Drama Club team who entered the All England Theatre Festival at the Blackmore Theatre last night.

A fantastic performance and great feedback in the adjudication. Finger crossed for the awards presentation on Saturday where we will find out if we have managed to retain our winning title for the 3rd year in a row!
