Hello, thank you for visiting and welcome along to the website of the Lovelace Theatre Group. We are small but dynamic and vibrant group engaged in the production of plays musicals and amateur theatre.

The Lovelace Theatre Group puts on three productions a year and has a long history dating back to the late 60's. We perform at the John Godber Centre in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire. The building is a converted church hall which has a purpose built stage complete with licenced bar and full amenities. There's rumoured to be a ghost wandering about backstage too!
Feel free to browse the website.

We hope you enjoy looking around.
The Will of the People

You might be wondering if this night's for you,
You may know some Shakespeare
You may not have a clue,
But one thing we can promise you,
To our own selves we'll be true.

Join us for an evening of Elizabeathan theatre, showcasing the best of Shakespeare and the best of Lovelace as we explore the funniest moments, the most tragic tragedies and the goriest deaths in the canon.

Friday October 20th at 7:30pm.

The Lovelace Theatre Junior Group
The Lovelace Theatre Group is always on the lookout for new talent not only with adults but also children. They are our lifeblood especially for our annual pantomime which takes place in January each year.

We hold Junior Group each Wednesday evening from 7:45pm to 9:30pm and these consist of drama sessions and acting lessons as well as song and dance. A small nominal cost of £1 to cover the cost of hire of our venue is made for this.

f you'd like to join the junior group, please call Linda on 0115 9681011 or email us at

Our Recent Performances
Our May 2017 performance was 'Stags and Hens'. It's 1970s Britain, and Dave and Linda are getting married in the morning, but both the stag and hen parties have wound up in the same run down nightclub.

When Dave collapses in a drunken heap in the toilets, and Linda’s old flame unexpectedly appears, things start to get very complicated in this Willy Russell comedy.

Click here for more information.

This amateur production of 'Stags and Hens (The remix)' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, Ltd.
Our 2017 pantomime was 'The Three Musketeers' directed by Tom Morley and Chris Stevenson.

Young D’Artagnan has recently arrived in Paris, with dreams of joining the Musketeers and guarding King Louis. But the Musketeers have been disbanded as part of a plot by the villainous Cardinal Richelieu!

Can D’Artagnan save the King and Queen from Richelieu and his cheesy henchman Rochefort? Are the interior decorations be good enough for evil spy Milady de Winter? Is there enough beer for all Three Musketeers?
