About CADS

Corvus* Amateur Drama Society (CADS) is Royston’s amateur drama group, performing since the 1940s. Membership is open to anyone from fifteen years of age upwards, though we also perform a family pantomime that embraces all age groups. The group performs regularly at Greneway School and Meridian School, Garden Walk, Royston.

CADS aims to enter different Drama Festivals on a regular basis and has entered the Haverhill, Welwyn, Sawston or Cambridge Drama Festivals with one-act plays most years since 2004. In three of the last five times it has entered the Cambridge festival, CADS has won the Audience Appreciation award; in 2007 and 2011 the group also won the overall best play award, in 2006, 2007 and 2013 members of the group won the Best Cameo award and in 2011 Jordan Worland won the award for Best Actor, with Bernie Parsons being nominated for Best Actress. Over the years, we have also picked up awards for sound and technical presentation, and members of CADS have also been nominated in many other categories at most of these festivals.

CADS also makes its own local drama awards each year - click here for details.
