Dates of existence


The Polytechnic Amateur Dramatic Society was formed in 1934. The society performed regularly until 1940 when, following a successful production of 'Private Lives', they took the decision to continue with a range of theatre-related discussions and activities during the War. The society was re-started in 1946 but had ceased its activities by 1976 at the latest.

Some time in 1977 the Ingoldsby Dramatic Society joined the Polytechnic Institute and became the Poly Ingoldsby Dramatic Society. They were still meeting in 1983 but it is not clear when they ceased.
