Order your copy to celebrate society's anniversary

Copies of a new book celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Dukinfield Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society can be ordered online.

David Owen and Paul Whitworth have joined forces to document the last 75 years of the society, created in 1946. 

Their book, entitled ‘Act One Beginners, Please’, features chapters on each decade of the group, full cast lists, a review of the performances, lots of nostalgic photographs and more.

With 260 pages dedicated to the history of the society, it has taken years to complete and is set to be released on February 18, the same date as the society came into being.

Priced at £15, details about how the book can be pre-ordered will be released on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DukinfieldAODS.

The Tameside local studies library will also be stocking physical copies of the book, but David encourages business to get in touch if they’d like to distribute and stock some of their own.
