The Hoghton Players is an amateur dramatics group from the village of Hoghton, near Preston, in Lancashire. We look to perform at least 2 plays per year to suit all tastes.


Whether you are due to watch one of our performances for the first time or, like many, you are returning to watch us again, you are very welcome and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved over the years and to all of our supporters across the country.

Brian Hoyle



Our dear friend Brian Hoyle passed away on Thursday 16th November 2023.

He was a long-standing dedicated member of The Hoghton Players

& served on the committee for many years. 

Brian often performed on stage and also successfully directed many of our productions & along with his wife Joyce, were our efficient bartenders. 


He will be sadly missed and remembered with great affection.


Thank you Brian for so many wonderful memories ❤️

Our new "The Hoghton Players" logo 


This is our new logo and we hope you like it! We will, initially, use this for our website only but will look to roll this out to our other marketing / production information

Our audiences and the Hoghton Players have donated more than £1,000 to a number of local charities in the last 12 months. Not only are you supporting local talent by watching our productions, but you are also supporting worthwhile causes.


From all of us at the Hoghton Players we would like to say THANK YOU.
