WHIPS History

WHIPS History

The Whips celebrated their 60th anniversary in August 2008 with a memorable BBQ and Murder Mystery Evening at the then Chairman’s home. Ten years on in October 2018 we will celebrate again with a Gala Evening of music and drama at the West Horsley Village Hall. Many people have enjoyed their time with the Whips over the years and there is an extensive collection of photographs, programmes and other material which will gradually be added to this archive.

You can download and read a summary history of the first 40 years written by Stephen Turner in its original form in the panel to the right. Also available is a full list of all the Whips productions.

Jack Griffith has been busily collating photographs, posters and programmes for all the Whips productions. Where available Jack has assembled a summary for each production from our most recent (currently A Dogs Life/Hands Across the Sea from October 2017) back as far as The Happiest Days of Your Life from 1951. Our thanks go to Jack for assembling this detailed record of The Whips productions and to the many members who have contributed material. Hopefully you will have a great deal of fun reviewing the material, especially for those shows which you may have participated in.

Progressively the material will added below but as a start you can review our productions by year by clicking on the link below.
