The Sinodun Players and Wallingford Corn Exchange announce partnership with The OPO

As Lord Lloyd-Webber has recently highlighted, theatres are in a perilous state due to the impact of Government pandemic legislation on audience numbers. However, for the Sinodun Players, there is a keen sense of anticipation and excitement with the announcement this week of a new partnership with The Old Post Office.

The new collaboration begins with the Sinodun Players’ latest production, children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows – running from 14th to 17th July - and the announcement received additional enthusiastic support from cast members, Toad, played by Adam Brimley, three ‘Wild Wooders’, Rebecca Cleverley, Sue Pritchard and David Simmons plus the town’s Mayor, Cllr Marcus Harris (pictured above).

As the nominated charity partner, The Old Post Office will provide much-needed fundraising support for The Sinodun Players as well as giving Corn Exchange ticketholders a generous 15% discount on dining before or after all their events, starting with The Wind in the Willows on 14th July.

From 14th July, a Corn Exchange ticketholder with a proof of one ticket valid for a show will receive a 15% discount on food only for a party of up to six people dining at The OPO the same day. Booking is advised.

Francesca Foley, The OPO’s General Manager, said: "We are very excited about our new partnership with the Sinodun Players and the Corn Exchange. The first of our regular Quiz Nights for the Sinodun Players will be this Wednesday, 7th July, when the Director of The Wind in the Willows, Marilyn Leadbetter, and a couple of the cast will kick the evening off with an insight into the production. We’ll also be hosting special events throughout the year, including a James Bond Gala Evening in September."

Welcome to the Sinodun Players

Welcome to the Sinodun Players website. This site contains information for current and prospective members, including details about forthcoming productions, social events, and information about how to get involved.

The Sinodun Players are owners, managers and operators of the 176 seat Corn Exchange in Wallingford. The theatre was created by members from the derelict shell of a Grade II Listed Building.

The theatre is maintained and operated through the voluntary efforts of members and friends bringing theatrical productions and cinema to the historic town of Wallingford.

The Sinodun Players perform at least four plays annually and a Pantomime in January as well as an annual Drama Festival competition for local amateur drama groups.

Visitors to the Corn Exchange can also enjoy regular Cinema, featuring the pick of current films, and an ever changing variety of visiting professional companies, including music concerts, Stand Up Comedy Nights, ballet, national drama companies, star names in concert and exhibitions.

The Corn Exchange opens for coffee on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm and is a favourite meeting place for members. Prospective members can come along and find out how to get involved.
