Formed back in 1964, the Deben Players are an award-winning amateur theatre group based in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

We generally stage three main productions a year, one in the spring, one in the autumn and also a Christmas pantomime, all at the Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge. We also have an active junior section that usually stages a production in the summer.

If you'd like to join the Deben Players then feel free to find out more by mailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We look forward to welcoming you!
